problems plague Q Television

Employees at Q Television Network claim they are not being paid, as the company faces increasing financial difficulties.

Employees at Q Television Network, one of three cable channels aimed at gay and lesbian viewers, claim that they are not being paid as the company faces increasing financial difficulties. Two employees, speaking on condition of anonymity, revealed that an internal memo indicated that one of Q's investors had dropped out, leaving the company to scramble for funds. It was reported Friday on Out.com that the network was going "on hiatus" until February 13, but at that time Q's executive vice president of network operations, Carol Hinnant, reported that full-time employees would continue to be paid.

When contacted by Advocate.com on Monday, Hinnant refused to comment on the late paychecks but said, "Every network has growing pains. We'll be back on the 13th, and we hope [our employees] will be back." Hinnant disputed claims by one of the Q employees that most of the network staff had gone home Monday after being informed that the paychecks they were due to receive on February 1, and then on February 3, would still not be available.
