NPR cuts 10 % of staff, names Haaga acting CEO [View all]

Source: USA Today

NPR on Friday said it plans to cut 10% of tits staff through voluntary buyouts and announced it has named board member Paul G. Haaga as acting CEO..

Haaga, 64, will replace Gary Knell, who announced last month his plans to step down to become CEO of the National Geographic Society. Haaga will assume the new role on Sept. 30.

Haaga has been on the board of the media organization since 2011, most recently as its vice chair and chair of the finance committee.

NPR said the buyout plan, which will be applied "broadly across the organization," was needed to eliminate a deficit and lower expenses. NPR has about 840 employees.
