CNN Lays Off Staffers From Its Health Unit

By A.J. Katz 

We can confirm that a number of staffers from CNN’s Health Unit have been laid off.

In addition, CNN’s Southeast Bureau in Atlanta, CNN Health and CNN Climate will now be under one leadership, something that was not the case before.

We hear that neither Dr. Sanjay Gupta nor correspondent Elizabeth Cohen are part of the layoffs.


A CNN spokesperson confirms this reporting, telling TVNewser, “As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit.”
