News brief: Job cuts loom at Australia’s Ten

The anticipated cancellation of breakfast show Wake Up and changes to its news output will reportedly lead to over 100 job losses at Australian commercial broadcaster Ten Network.

The job losses will reportedly number about 150 with local news production staff and those working on the breakfast show expected to be hardest hit.

The broadcaster, which is attempting to stem half yearly losses, has not made the programming and staff changes official.

Staff working in Australia’s public broadcast sector also face uncertain futures following deep cutbacks.
