Harris Cuts 100+ Jobs?
Harris Corp. has laid off approximately 100 people, according to The Leslie Report, an email newsletter from sister publication Radio World.
The cuts appear to have gone across all divisions and are due to lower sales. Harris officials declined comment.
Among those now on the street who are familiar to Radio World readers are Chris Pannell, Joe Maleski and Terry Becht, according to the report. Pannell was promoted to director of North American radio sales last year when Harris began its channels partners program, enlisting some 15 outside dealers, distributors and system integrators to help sell its gear in smaller markets.
Radio sales staff now report to Joe Mack, vice president of television transmission sales, the report said.
