[Ed. – Where will liberals turn for their left-wing propaganda?]
National Public Radio (NPR) is cutting the pay of executives across the board to help offset the financial impact of the pandemic on the company.
CEO John Lansing sent an email to the staff last week explaining that NPR was preparing to take a $12-$15 million hit in the amount it had expected to receive from sponsors this fiscal year.
Close to one-third of NPR’s revenue comes from corporate sponsors, including State Farm, Trader Joe’s, and General Motors. These sponsors are largely in lieu of traditional advertisements, which the company does not run.
“We do not have any position eliminations on the table now … and it is out goal to avoid them as much as is reasonably possible,” said Lansing in the email. His own salary will be cut by 25%.
