It appears more staff cuts could be coming for the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), as well as a new business direction.

Minister of Education, Technological and Vocational Training Santia Bradshaw said as much as she spoke on the Caribbean Broadcasting (Amendment Bill) 2019 in the House of Assembly yesterday. santia-bradshaw

“You have a further restructuring exercise that will take place over the course of the next couple months. We had started the restructuring process last year with a view to reducing the staff complement because the reality is that even when you compare current staff complement to some of the major broadcasting entities overseas, we are still in a situation where the staff complement of the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation is significantly higher than any organisation or operation whether similar or even larger. Technology has allowed us to reduce the number employed,” Bradshaw said. (SP)
