Kim, a long-time host of eTalk, and Hart, a host forThe Movie Network saw their positions eliminated as part of the company’s plan to cut 120 jobs¬†at its Toronto TV operations due to financial pressures in advertising and on its subscription TV services. In July it cut 91 positions from its in-house production unit.

In addition, two positions were eliminated at Bell Media Radio in Ottawa. Five radio personalities at BOB FM have been let go. A Bell spokesperson says the positions at BOB FM will be replaced but would not offer further details.
