Producers have the chance to be rehired at lower salaries
CNN cut or reduced 50 positions across multiple divisions on Thursday, changing roles and reducing positions and salaries across the board, a CNN executive told TheWrap.
There is essentially no head count change, a network executive wrote in an email. Fifty positions have been impacted. Roles will [be] changed.
CNN President Jeff Zucker met with newsroom reporters on Thursday to tell them the bad news, an insider told TheWrap. The cuts mainly affect news producers and managers, some of whom will be invited to reapply for new or updated positions at lower salaries.
The insider said Zucker's plan is to reduce packaged news stories to three or four per day and described the reaction in the newsroom as shell-shocked.

Did they move everyone over to the entertainment division?
They should do more liberal programming. Perhaps side with the admin more. you know...hope for change.
I'm shocked to learn that A) They still have a "newsroom" and B) They still call the employees "reporters".
I know! Maybe a smarty-pants up on high figured out that a raise in the minimum wage needs to be offset elsewhere. Gotta get the money out of the shrinking pie somehow!
Maybe sponsors have finally caught on that virtually no one is watching CNN, after they’ve spent two months on the missing Malaysian plane. What a ridiculous outfit CNN is!
The natural ending for a biased news network and they STILL don’t get it.
So long “Chicken Noodle News”. Things have been terrible for you ever since you lost your buddy, Saddam Hussein.
Hey! No news in the newsroom! (To paraphrase "Dr. Strangelove.")
I thought they were called the “Crappy News Network”? Did I miss a name change somewhere?
Comrade News Network: ‘We have glorious news for you!’
CNN employees will soon be competing with Mexicans for the jobs Americans don’t want to do.
... which makes sense, since CNN employees aren’t really Americans.
“Chicken Noodle News” is an oldie. It was after “The War Channel” (GW1) and before, “Clinton News Network”.
They can pay anybody off the street to lie at half the price.
These talking heads should have been doing their own homework instead of getting it from a White House Fax machine.
This is really rearranging the cubicle chairs on the CNN.
Iceberg dead ahead!!
CNN is like a radio shack in a lonely strip mall. Nobody goes there and you wonder how it stays in business.
More lost plane stories.
More liberal political views.
Wage increases for all employees.
do you recall that Jeffy had his kids star in the creepy Obama kids “Dear Leader “ song video .
Is this Obama cultist is going to help CNN ?
They probably think it was good while it lasted. Easy money.
