After rescue, Current TV considers layoffs
Jackson West of NBC Bay Area reports that SF-based Current TV is looking at layoffs and may relocate its video production to LA or outsource it. Current TV became a household name when two of its reporters were captured by North Korea, later to be freed with the help of Bill Clinton. Current TV, co-founded by Al Gore, has gone from soliciting viewer content to producing much of its own programming.
