The Museum of Television & Radio, confronted with "difficult financial challenges," has laid off 15 employees in Los Angeles and New York.
The staff reduction, confirmed by Frank A. Bennack Jr., chairman of the board, comes at the same time as the resignation of the museum's president, Stuart Brotman.
Museum officials could not be reached for comment late Friday. But Bennack said in a statement that 14 full-time employees and one part-time employee were let go last week.
"Like most other not-for-profit institutions, the museum has faced difficult financial challenges and reluctantly had to make these adjustments," he said in the statement.
