Huge Cutbacks at ABC Subsiding


The wrenching 300-plus employee cuts at ABC News that were announced last fall have finally been completed, according to David Westin, president of the division. With a final round of 22 layoffs yesterday, according to the Times, that’s roughly 25 percent of the staff gone. Westin announced the end of the layoffs and buyouts in an e-mail to staff today titled “Transformation.” [Media Decoder/NYT]
