At North Carolina station, layoffs start at the top

The board of WHQR in Wilmington, N.C., has laid off three of its top managers, including General Manager John Milligan, the Wilmington Star-News reported yesterday. The layoffs, intended to maintain the station's "long-term financial viability," the news release said, also include the news and development directors. In addition, the station eliminated its p.d. position, which is vacant. The station's website lists about a dozen staff members and 10 on-air personalities.
