ERSNews.com is reporting that Sam Zell-owned KTLA laid off seven News Department employees and four reporters.

But, ERS says, “they have hired a new features reporter for the Morning News. Her name is Allie MacKay and she arrives in the newsroom tomorrow. MacKay will be on the air in the next week.”

UPDATE: We had initially reported that 11 people were fired, but, um, we did our math wrong. (“Tee-hee.” Twirl hair.)
