Bell media goes on these budget cutting binges every year. It makes you wonder if they should just shutdown their news operation because they keep firing personnel.

So far these hits appear to be inside. Just read this G&M article which doesn’t say a heck of a lot. With the sacking of Kevin Bell in Victoria, I understand there is only ONE Sales Rep at CTV Vancouver Island selling for the TV side.

According to one of the Toronto based media publications there were 40 jobs cut today at Bell. The local story is the Victoria operation will be run with weekly visits from managers based in Vancouver. This is what they did before as the New VI or early A Channel days as I recall. It didn’t work then either.
