>UPDATE: ABC’s graphics department is being let go (roughly eight individuals).
>UPDATE: An ABC insider tells us:
This is part of the strategic process David Westin announced to the news division back in June. As part of that process we are restructuring our graphics department in Washington and moving graphics operations to NY. The only program solely produced out of Washington “This Week,” will maintain a graphics operation there.
In addition, two Washington-based Nightline research positions have been restructured into digital and segment positions. The responsibilities of the two researchers will be assumed by other nightline staffers.
