WHTJ in Richmond, Va., has shrunk from five employees to just two–both of whom work from home, reports The Hook, a weekly newpaper in Charlottesville. The station recently closed its office across from City Hall, and g.m. D.J. Crotteau left June 5, according to the paper. WHTJ is part of the Community Idea Stations, which are owned by the Commonwealth Public Broadcasting Corporation. The station offers one local program, but “we don’t really need a studio for that,” station spokeswoman Lynn McCarthy-Jones told the paper. “We don’t need to do that in-house.”
