Layoffs Rain Down at Weather Channel


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.
