The Washington Examiner newsroom has been in intense meetings all morning. The long and short of it? They’re largely shutting down their print edition, closing down their local section and moving to a once a week political magazine. They will hold onto their online presence. Noteworthy: The Yeas & Nays gossip column has been nixed.

Washington City Paper has the story. In it, they report that an estimated 30 employees have been laid off.
