Grant Broadcasters reduce staff and expenses to cope with COVID-19

Grant Broadcasters has cut staff numbers, reduced operating costs and the Senior Executive team has agreed to a reduction in their base remuneration in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


A small number of redundancies have been made to meet current market conditions along with a reduction of casual staff, travel between markets and client hospitality.
Grant Broadcasters is hopeful that the forthcoming announcement from the Prime Minister as to the additional package to assist workers will assist the Company in retaining as many staff as possible, but depending on this announcement, further measures may need to be taken with regards to overall staffing numbers.
Grant Broadcasters’ CEO, Alison Cameron, said: “Like all other media, Grant Broadcasters is experiencing a significant downturn in revenue as a result of the restrictions placed on businesses and outdoor activities. We have taken prudent measures to ensure that the we can retain has many staff as possible through these trying times. We are committed to making sure that we give our people the best possible individual support, as well as continuing to provide the most relevant news and content to our local communities.”
These changes have come into effect immediately with 2ST’s Dave Stretton being one of the people made redundant today.
