Staffing cuts continue at Universal Music Group’s Island Def Jam division. A&R representatives Paul Pontius and Rob Stevenson have exited, following last week’s departure of executive VP of promotion Greg Thompson.

Additionally, the staff of imprint Stolen Transmission, which was co-founded by Stevenson and blogger Sarah Lewitinn, was also let go.

In total, ten staffers have been cut to this point.

Via her personal blog, Lewitinn has stated that she plans to continue running Stolen Transmission as an indie.
