ABC News has cut 12 positions in its Washington bureau as part of a reorganization.
Politico reports the cuts affect engineering, operations and editorial staff, including some at ABC News Radio. The changes come as ABC shifts personnel away from being assigned by show to being assigned by beat and across platforms.
Citing a staff memo from Washington Bureau Chief Jonathan Greenberger, Politico reports he stated the changes will turn “the bureau into a single team serving every platform within ABC News.”
Radio World hears from a knowledgeable engineering source that the radio bureau on DeSales Street in Washington, which took up half of the floor of the larger TV news bureau, is closing.
The changes also mean new jobs will open up as ABC seeks reporters with expertise in specific areas, according to the account.
