Up to 20 jobs – almost half of the station's workforce – are under threat at Kerrang! 105.2, according to a Birmingham newspaper report.
The Birmingham Post [link=http://www.birminghampost.net/birmingham-business/birmingham-business-news/creative-industries-news/2009/06/23/up-to-20-jobs-under-threat-at-kerrang-radio-station-65233-23946964/]suggests[/link] a major shake up of staff is underway, which could see eight full time staff being made redundant, along with a cut in freelancers.
Owner Bauer Media confirmed discussions are currently taking place with staff with a proposal to reshape the team at Kerrang! Radio to meet its long-term potential.
“We are currently discussing these proposals with staff and until this process has concluded there will be no further comment.”
Last month it was reported the local and national news for the Sony Station of the Year would be provided by the news team at Key 103 in Manchester.
