Future to axe 75% of Daily Radar staff

'Restructure' of UK Net operation

We have it on good authority that Future Publishing is to lay off 75 per cent of staff working on its Daily Radar UK content operation as part of an "Internet restructuring".

Eight people including the editor are believed to be on the way to a P45, although it is unknown why Future is scaling back the portal operation quite so dramatically.

Future declined to comment this lunchtime, but admitted that editor Andy Smith wasn't in the office today. Unlucky staff are thought to be making arrangements this afternoon amid uncertainty over their future at the company.

Daily Radar has risen to the position of the UK's biggest leisure and gaming Web site after an enormously successful push in the US. There is no word on the operation overseas, but the redundancies are presently thought to centre on the UK operation. ®
