ABC News Buyouts to Hit Tomorrow

On the tail of CBS News’ recent round of layoffs, hundreds of ABC News employees are expected to be offered buyouts tomorrow morning. A source familiar with the situation tells FishbowlDC that the buyouts will hit the Washington bureau as well.

Mediaite reports that the buyouts are expected to be offered to employees both on and off-air. Check out Steve Krakauer‘s post for more details.

UPDATE: Our sister blog TVNewser says the cuts will hit 300-400 employees. Check out the staff memo from David Westin obtained by TVNewser and their post here.
