By Hiawatha Bray Globe Staff / October 17, 2009
Comcast Corp. is eliminating 64 jobs at its Spotlight television advertising operation in Wellesley, according to a layoff notice filed with the state.
Comcast vice president Lori Bell Shuk said the job cuts are part of a reorganization at Spotlight, which sells advertising on Comcast’s cable television network. Workers were notified in late September, but most of them will keep their jobs through the end of the year.
In addition, Comcast has offered the employees a chance to apply for other positions at the company.
