CNN layoffs: Network's new boss Chris Licht announces mass cuts to staff starting from Wednesday
An all-staff memo was sent to employees at CNN by CEO Chris Licht indicating that the network has begun the process of layoffs.
The memo was tweeted out by the news channel's senior media reporter Oliver Darcy on Wednesday.
"CNN boss Chris Licht informs employees in an all-staff note that layoffs are underway. Licht says those being notified today are largely paid contributors and then tomorrow CNN 'will notify impacted employees.' Licht will then provide an update to staff afterward," Darcy tweeted.
