RADCLIFF, Ky. (AP) -- The Nielsen company says it is closing a call center in Radcliff where 237 people are employed.
The News-Enterprise reports Nielsen senior human resources partner Tamela Puckett said in a notice sent to city officials that the media statistics company will shutter the center on July 31. The letter said the closure is expected to be permanent.
A statement from the company says the move is part of a reorganization effort.
Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall said Nielsen had operated the Radcliff call center for more than 15 years. He called the announcement "unfortunate" for the community.
