Layoffs Rain Down at Weather Channel

Publish date:

The forecast isn’t bright for as many as 30 employees of The Weather Channel who have been laid off over the past couple of weeks as part of a network-restructuring effort.

It was unclear which divisions were affected. A TWC spokeswoman would only confirm that a "small number of positions" were eliminated as part of a "repositioning of resources within the company."

The spokeswoman added however, that the net effect of the action -- which was to meet the requirements of a "new area of focus to grow the business" -- will ultimately result in either "flat or negligible" losses in terms of employees.
