MPBN to lay off up to 10 employees due to Federal sequester

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network announced today that it is making employee layoffs to address the effects of the unexpected shortfall in Federal and State funding this year. MPBN received word that funding for fiscal year 2013 will be over $100,000 less than expected due to both the Federal budget sequestration and additional curtailments by the State of Maine. This decline in funding is in addition to MPBN’s State appropriation being reduced by $260,000 in 2013.
