The figures appeared this week in the financial statements for the first half. The full staff that the Chilevisión television station counted as of June amounted to 551 workers. In the same results as of March, the company registered 720 people. In between, its controller, Warner Media, agreed with the American company Viacom the sale of Chilevisión, which will lead to the consequent separation of its other two businesses, CNN and the Soccer Channel, today TNT Sport, and the division of shared endowments between all three units.
Thus, in three months, Chilevisión reduced its number of employees by 169 workers. Warner Media will continue to command CNN and TNT Sports. The transaction has not yet closed.
Chilevisión was in the first half of this year the station with the highest earnings on local broadcast television. Between January and June, it obtained profits of $ 4,667 million, which is equivalent to more than two-thirds of what the entire industry added in benefits. And this despite the fact that it was not the one with the highest turnover, where Mega, from Behia, was the leader, with revenues of $ 37,089 million.
