allen_11-21.jpgFollowing up on yesterday’s item about cuts at The Weather Channel, NewsBlues has more on the layoffs. The “entire TWC Environmental Unit” has been scrapped which includes the weekend program “Forecast Earth,” Newsblues reports. That show is fronted by former CNN and MSNBC anchor Natalie Allen.

NewsBlues also reports the cuts, “will most likely exceed the 50 job losses initially reported.”
