Media Max on Wednesday surprised most of their followers as a crackdown at the media entities took place. This crackdown was all reducing the number of employees in their organizations. This has made many to leave the entity with heartbreaks.
The move that took many by surprised was reported to be ongoing indoors. The workers were prepared in advance and they knew the knife would land in any of them.
In total over 160 employees were laid out in K24, People Daily and other vernacular stations owned by the media entity. Some of the common faces that you used to see and love might not be in your radio or favorite TV stations.
