Seven West Media to make staff cuts. Staff at Seven West Media in Perth have been given until Tuesday to submit an expression of interest in voluntary redundancy, as part of cuts announced late last year. Editorial staff were told yesterday via email there was not a target number of people to leave the newsroom. "It will be looked at in the context of the whole business and will depend on operational requirement," the email said.
In November, CEO Tim Worner said the company would cut $55 million in costs across the country by the end of the financial year. Fairfax Media reported yesterday that Seven West Media's WA boss John Driscoll had said he'd worked "tirelessly" to reduce costs, but as a last resort, there would need to be redundancies.
