Staff Cuts Made at Harris Broadcast
Spokesman says layoffs not related to sale
QUINCY, ILL. -- Up to 17 people have been laid off from Harris Broadcast Communications Division. Many of those affected worked in Quincy, Ill. Harris isn’t commenting on the exact number or positions of those who are no longer with the company.

Radio World recently reported that overall revenue in the first quarter of the new fiscal year was down 6 percent over last year, and down 13 percent from the last quarter. The Broadcast Communications Division is up for sale and is now marked as a discontinued operation as Harris reports its earnings each quarter.

Harris spokesman Brian Galante told Radio World the layoffs were unrelated to the divestiture and characterized the action as a small strategic reorganization across the various business units. He stressed the Quincy plant is remaining open and Harris recently received two new contracts for radio and television digital transmitters that will keep the Quincy plant employees busy. We were unable to get a figure on how many employees are in the Broadcast Division at press time.
