Layoffs Hit AP, Including LA Entertainment Writer

The Associated Press is laying off 10 employees, reports Jim Romenesko. Among those losing their jobs is LA-based entertainment writer Rosalie Fox–who had nearly 20 years with the company. Others hit include two assistant bureau chiefs on the East Coast as well as a photo editor in San Francisco.

Romenesko also reports that the AP is ditching the premium-service personal finance wire it had run since 2008.
