TWT Layoffs Hitting Now

Breaking: The TWT purge has officially begun. A source tells FishbowlDC that Managing Editor-Print David Jones, Dep. Managing Editor-News Geoff Etnyre and writer Barbara Slavin are among the folks who have already received layoff notice. The rest of the staff will receive letters at 3.30 pm to learn if they will have jobs beyond tomorrow. So far, we’ve only heard that Chris Dolan and Carleton Bryant have been retained.

Update: Add Kara Rowland to the “safe” list but we hear that Liz Glover and Stephanie Green were sacrificed.

We’ll continue to update as we learn more.
