KCBS cutbacks include Ann Martin, Harold Greene

The Daily News and Variety report that Channel 2 anchors Ann Martin and Harold Greene are among the staffers who will leave the KCBS-KCAL stations as part of a big cutback that came down yesterday. The pair will officially retire when their contracts expire June 1, the reports say. Total numbers of those affected vary between 10 and 20, but Variety says that reporters Jennifer Sabih and Jennifer Davis will be leaving.
