The New York Post is reporting that there were layoffs handed down at CNBC Friday:
CNBC is laying off a handful of staffers today, according to sources close to the network. The pink slips are part of a company-wide mandate to cut 450 positions across NBCUniversal.
The positions are believed to be low-level and number less than 10. The changes come as NBC News Chair Patricia Fili-Krushel makes her mark in the news division.
A CNBC spokesperson declined to comment on the report.
