The New York Post is reporting that there were layoffs handed down at CNBC Friday:

CNBC is laying off a handful of staffers today, according to sources close to the network. The pink slips are part of a company-wide mandate to cut 450 positions across NBCUniversal.

The positions are believed to be low-level and number less than 10. The changes come as NBC News Chair Patricia Fili-Krushel makes her mark in the news division.

A CNBC spokesperson declined to comment on the report.
