Nine positions, or 14 percent of the workforce, are gone at Iowa Public Radio. A statement from CEO Mary Grace Herrington said the move completes a reorganization that began with the merger of three pubradio groups into a state network (Current, January 2005 and September 2008). Several employees will take early retirement, and others are being offered severance packages. Four of the nine are vacant slots. The reorganization also includes shifting staff into other areas.
