Fox News Hit With Layoffs Amid Reorganization

Fox News

Fox News will lay off staff in a reorganization and restructuring of its businesses.

“As Fox News Media has evolved into a streamlined multiplatform organization, we are realigning several functions and restructuring various divisions in order to position all of our businesses for ongoing success,” a Fox News spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.

No on-air talent are expected to be impacted by the changes, and less than 3 percent of staff will lose their jobs in the reorg. Fox News’ parent company Fox Corp. employees about 9,000 people, and has been reorganizing its businesses by division. In July, Fox Sports laid off between 50 and 100 people in a similar move to “streamline” operations.

Fox Corp. had mostly avoided layoffs since selling its entertainment assets to Disney last year.

The layoffs at Fox News are not related to the novel coronavirus pandemic, with the exception of the channel’s hair and makeup department, which was heavily impacted by the pandemic. Going forward, only anchors and contributors will get their hair and makeup done, not on-air guests, a source familiar with the matter tells THR.

The restructuring comes as most Fox Corp. employees continue to work from home due to the pandemic. Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch told staff in a memo last month that non-production staff should expect to continue working remotely until 2021.
