Abu Dhabi Media (ADM) has announced job cuts in its broadcast division, and warned of similar cutbacks in other departments.
ADM, which owns and publishes The National, said it conducted a "strategic review" of the department, which operates several television stations including the Abu Dhabi Drama Channel.The company did not specify the number of staff that would be affected, but it is believed to be about 100.
ADM said a similar review would be extended to other divisions, which include publishing and digital media operations.
"The strategic review of other divisions in the company will continue and the process is expected to lead to similar changes in these divisions in the coming months," said Frank Mooty, ADM's acting chief executive, in a note to staff.
Malcolm Wall was last month named the new chief executive of the company.
Mr Wall, who was previously the chief executive for content at Virgin Media, will take up the position in September.
