With corporate support revenues running 11 percent below last year, New Hampshire Public Radio laid off four employees. Business reporter David Darman, one of five full-time NHPR journalists, was among those riffed, according to the Concord Monitor. “Everybody knows the economy’s bad, and the station’s not immune to that,” Darman told the Monitor. “But it was a shock to me.” NHPR’s member support revenues have been growing, but not enough to cover lost underwriting income, according to Alexandra Urbanowski, v.p. of development and marketing.
