Confirmed: WUMB laid off its weekend staff in February

First reported cryptically in this blog on February 11 ~ see "Changes in the Air for WUMB Weekend Live Programming" ~ I am now free to say that what was reported then is true, WUMB has laid off its weekend staff.

Buried at the very end of an article in the Boston Globe about Club Passim's new alcohol policy, Joan Alderman writes:

"We got three kegs of beer and had to return two. And the first one was half-full," recalls Monteith, who recently laid off the station's weekend staff and part-time employees, slashed the budget by $100,000, and canceled the festival. "Booze and folk are strange bedfellows."
