PBS SoCal is canceling its longtime magazine show, Real Orange, reports the Orange County Business Journal.
The positions for hosts Ed Arnold and Ann Pulice will be eliminated, as will one full-time production job and two part-time positions. Other production staffers will be reassigned.
The program has aired on the Los Angeles station since 1997. Production ends in December.
“We understand it’s a challenging transition for some of our colleagues,” said station spokesperson Stacy Shaffer, “but we do believe it’s the right decision to help move PBS SoCal forward and strengthen the value of the programming that we provide to Southern California.”
