National Public Radio said Friday that it is offering across-the-board buyouts in the hopes of cutting its staff by 10 percent and eliminating its deficit.

The buyouts, which are to be offered across the entire organization, were approved by NPR's board of directors to help with a projected operating deficit of $6.1 million.

NPR distributes news, information and music programming to 975 public radio stations (including Tucson's 89.1), reaching 27 million listeners a week.
