More changes are coming to CNN Radio with one longtime D.C. correspondent out.
Dick Uliano, who’s been with the network 11 years, is out. Before joining CNN in 1999, Uliano spent 16 years at the Associated Press in its broadcast division. Also out: an Atlanta-based CNN Radio news manager and an Atlanta-based national correspondent.
“We are changing the structure; however, there is no reduction in the headcount at CNN Radio,” a CNN spokesperson tells FishbowlDC, adding, “To develop new programming and content we need to embrace new skills and ideas. So by realigning the team to produce new programming and services we will be able to grow and take advantage of the new platforms both within CNN and outside.”
The downsizing in Washington follows layoffs earlier this year at CNN Radio HQ in Atlanta. In January, TVNewser reported that CNN Radio had cut 11 staffers in a reorganization of the radio operations.
