ISLAMABAD – DawnNews Television has terminated top anchors and those associated with their programs.
Insiders say the sacked presenters are Baqir Sajjad Syed who hosted the program 2 Raaye, and Jawad Ahmed Siddiqi, host of Dusra Rukh.
The management has also slapped a 10 percent cut on salaries of regular staff and as much on their fuel.
The events at DawnNews follow a string of such pay cuts and layoffs at several other television channels and newspapers.
The management, however, has not sacked Asad Rahim, who co-hosted 2 Rayee with Baqir.
