Broadcast Staffing Firm to Lay Off 100
WASHINGTON: Around 100 people working in television production and post-production under a Team Broadcast Services contract will be laid off next month, the Washington Business Journal reports. TBS had been contracted to staff the Middle East Broadcasting Networks based in Springfield, Va., a suburb south of Washington, D.C.

MEBN operates Alhurra Television and Radio Sawa, which produce and broadcast news and information to 22 countries throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. Both are funded through the Broadcasting Board of Governors. Team recently lost the contract and will extricate operations by the end of November. A company executive said he expects MEBN to allow the Team contractors to apply directly for jobs they had been doing.

The Journal said the Team staff positions included editing, master control operation and studio personnel.
