Radio Disney Shutting Down Amid Restructuring

og_radiodisney_18121_c73fbb3c-2986467.jp

Disney is shuttering its Radio Disney division amid the ongoing restructuring at the media giant.

Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country will both stop broadcasting in the first quarter of 2021, resulting in layoffs for 36 full- and part-time employees. Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Branded Television, made the announcement Thursday.

The decision comes as Disney is undergoing a restructuring of its divisions and priorities. As part of that, Marsh's Branded Television group has a mandate to increase production of content for streaming platform Disney+ and Disney Channels.

The rise of streaming audio and the pandemic-fueled uncertainty about the future of live music events also contributed to the decision.

The shutdown will not affect Radio Disney in Latin America, which is a separate operation.

Have you read this? 36 people. Some of them part time. 

This wasn’t a matter of COVID, this was a matter of time, COVID might have accelerated it, but not a lot. The main causes are  radio being a dying entertainment field, DR not making much money and Disney focusing on streaming with Disney+.

Wow...they REALLY must be losing money...they're letting go SOOO many people from their theme parks, Marvel executives, and now their radio station...

And with California experiencing its highest peaks of the virus since the pandemic started...we are working backwards instead of forwards in trying to reopen and get cases down

Disneyland won't be opening anytime soon :bradley:

 

Stream my new single đŸ”„"Sapphire Phoenix"đŸ”„ on Spotify!

Taylor Swift's new album, 'evermore' is out now!

You need to Chile sis, @BillieGOAT is right, it is because of the pandemic that they have lost more than 6 billions up to date. That’s way they are adding everything to their streaming services instead. So relax and read an article instead of lashing out on people lol
