Continental Broadcasting Service, the parent company of Television Continental, TVC and Radio Continental, on Friday sacked 145 of its workers in a major shake-up as a result of economic downturn in the country and to keep the media group alive.

P.M.EXPRESS gathered that the news was broken to the staff after a meeting at the station’s headquarters in Ikosi, Lagos between the management and the entire staff.

Sources at the meeting said the Station’s Chief Executive Officer told the distraught workers that the sack became imperative because the stations are struggling to survive commercially.

It was gathered that prominent broadcasters were among those sacked on Friday as the station could no longer cope with a burgeoning workforce.

Aftermath of the mass sack, tension and sadness are said to have taken over the premises of the station as broadcasters who have served the station diligently were shown the way out.

TVC is one of Nigeria’s foremost television stations.

It was gathered that the management has also shutdown its TVC International, with TVC Nigeria now to take over the former’s function.

Earlier in the day, tension built up as management of the station beefed up security at its premises, employing the services of policemen to man the gate.

Also, fierce-looking professional bouncers were seen at the station as they took strategic positions, ready to deal ruthlessly with any unruly sacked workers.
