All six members of the editorial staff of the privately-owned radio station Radio Monaco have been told they will no longer have jobs from the end of this year, several news sources report. Two other posts will also go.

Radio Monaco, owned by Gildo Pallanca-Pastor, broadcasts from Menton to St-Tropez and was due to celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2017.

One employee, quoted by 20 Minutes, denounced the “extreme brutality” of the firings.

Station manager Richard Borfiga said that Radio Monaco “will keep four people.” Gildo Pallanca-Pastor, owner of electric vehicle firm Venturi, is reported to be seeking ways to keep the loss-making station on the air.
