A TVNewser tipster tells us a round of layoffs hit Anderson Cooper 360 this afternoon. CNN confirms seven producers from the show are being laid off. A spokesperson tells TVNewser, “The format of AC360 has evolved over the last year and we are adjusting staff accordingly. A very small portion of the staff is impacted and we are hopeful they will remain with CNN.”
This summer AC360 implemented a format that is live for the first hour (10pmET) and remains live or partially live for the second hour (11pmET).
