Layoffs have hit CNBC.com, TVNewser has learned. Around eight staffers have been cut.
At the same time, CNBC.com is adding to the roster. Eric Chemi is joining as senior editor-at-large of Data Journalism. Chemi had been at Bloomberg Media.
And John Melloy has returned to CNBC after a brief stint at StockTwits. When Melloy bolted for the social media company, CNBC considered filing a breach of contract suit against him. Apparently, that’s water under the bridge as Melloy is back in the fold focusing on content for CNBC PRO.
