Al Jazeera America continues to make cuts as the cable channel dies a slow death as many expected.
Variety reports that the network has canceled its morning program as well as “Consider This With Antonio Mora,” a late-morning program, and is considering other changes to its programming, according to a person familiar with the network. The New York Post reported earlier Monday that Al Jazeera America was likely to give some of its primetime anchors like Ali Velshi and Joie Chen less airtime and also eliminate other programming in the mid-to-late afternoon.
“We are always looking at our scheduling calendar in order to offer our audience the most compelling news hours and programs,” the network said in a statement. “Increasingly we’re finding that viewers are coming us for in depth reporting and analysis of domestic and global news events and our goal is to offer that around the clock.”
The network isn't saying, but sources tell FTVLive that more layoffs are coming with these latest cuts.
They really just need to pull the plug on the whole thing and be done with it.
