WGNO has laid off eight people, including the anchor of the now-gone 6:30 p.m. newscast, reports the Times-Picayune.

Those people are Jessica Holly, the anchor, reporter Glynn Boyd, sports reporter and weekend anchor Kristina Pink, and reporter Christian Jennings. Four photographers were also cut.

WGNO’s non-traditional newscast, “News with a Twist,” where anchors Susan Roesgen and LeBron “LBJ” Joseph host from bar stools, is expanding, and since that show requires fewer staffers, “the station’s decision to emphasize the “Twist” brand prompted the layoffs,” the Times-Picayune’s Dave Walker said.
