More Media Woes: Cuts At Clear Channel, Wehco’s Tennessee Newspaper

More media bleeding at two companies with Arkansas connections:

Wehco Media’s Chattanooga Times Free Press cuts nine newsroom positions due to the economic slump. Wehco also owns the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, which is no stranger to cutbacks.

Clear Channel Communications cuts nine radio jobs in Little Rock, part of 590 cuts nationwide. In all, the San Antonio-based company, which grew exponentially in the ’90s under media deregulation, has cut 2,500 positions this year.
