The Weather Channel lays off staff

The Weather Channel is minus some personnel after laying off an undisclosed number of people, as announced by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Weather Channel said in a press release:
“The economic realities of recent months have created challenges for everyone in our business. In addition, when NBC Universal purchased the Weather Channel earlier this year, we expected that there would be cost synergies as part of company reorganization. While it is always difficult to lose valued employees, we are doing our best to minimize the impact, and remain committed to providing the highest quality content that our viewers have come to expect from the Weather Channel.”
Now owned by NBC Universal who bought them in September, Weather Channel officials had no comment.
