Harris Broadcast spokesman 'not aware' of any Quincy cuts

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Despite a realignment following the February sale of Harris Broadcast, a spokesman told WGEM News he is "not aware of any cuts" at the Quincy facility.

In a recent interview with TVTechnology.com, CEO Harris Morris said the company has made several behind-the-scenes changes in the past few months which included a 10% staff reduction throughout the company over the next year.

"I'm not aware of any cuts in Quincy," Harris spokesman Brian Galante said. "The company is just making marginal changes globally to operate more efficiently."

The Gores Group announced the purchase of Harris Broadcast back in December of 2012 for a price tag of $225 million. The sale was finalized in February.

Galante also said he doesn't know of any personnel changes in Quincy in the near future, either.
