The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

CTV BC lays off news production staff

CTV British Columbia has laid off three full-time and two part-time news-production staff.

General Manager Tom Haberstroh told The Hook the layoffs resulted from CTV BC's no longer doing local inserts for Canada AM.

"We will still have a news ticker on Canada AM with B.C. news," Haberstroh said.

Crawford Kilian is a contributing editor with The Tyee.
