One of the major cable news channels has announced job cuts after a three-year review of the company’s work processes, reports TVNewser.com.
CNN cut at least 50 jobs, the story reports, citing a memo from Senior Vice President Jack Womack. At least 12 employees in Washington, D.C., were cut, including four longtime photojournalists, the piece says.
Other staffers were laid off in Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles and Miami, according to the report.
"Technology investments in our newsrooms now allow more desk-top editing and publishing for broadcast and online," Womack wrote in the memo. "As a result of these technology and workflow changes, CNN is reducing the number of media editors in our work force in Atlanta."
