Ideastream, the local nonprofit media organization which operates the Cleveland NPR (90.3 WCPN) and PBS (WVIZ) affiliates, as well as classical radio station 104.9 WCLV, will lay off eight employees due to Covid-19 cost-cutting measures. WCPN's Nick Castele reported the internal news Wednesday, noting that five vacant positions would remain unfilled as well. The eight layoffs, he wrote, will affect ideastream's arts, multimedia and sales teams. (The online version of the story included a postscript indicating that ideastream's management did not edit the story or review it prior to publication.)
