The Basel-Media Foundation has announced cost-cutting measures in the editorial department of the regional television station Telebasel and the news portal Basel-jetzt. As part of the restructuring of the programming and editorial department, 3 of a total of 38 jobs are to be cut, as the foundation announced on Monday.
The year 2023 proved to be unexpectedly difficult for the entire industry, according to the press release. The advertising market has developed surprisingly negatively, and great efforts are needed to maintain quality and media diversity in the future.
In addition to the job cuts in the editorial department, the foundation wants to strengthen its sales department in order to improve its earnings situation, according to the press release. This requires new innovative products and more advice. (sda)
