Keep in mind when you read this: Fox News pays Sean Hannity more than $25 million a year plus his staff. Fox News will lay off staff in a reorganization and restructuring of its businesses.
“As Fox News Media has evolved into a streamlined multiplatform organization, we are realigning several functions and restructuring various divisions in order to position all of our businesses for ongoing success,” a Fox News spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.
Fox News’ parent company Fox Corp. employees about 9,000 people, and has been reorganizing its businesses by division. In July, Fox Sports laid off between 50 and 100 people in a similar move to “streamline” operations.
Fox Corp. had mostly avoided layoffs since selling its entertainment assets to Disney last year.
