Layoffs Spread to NBC’s Washington Bureau

Breaking: After layoffs at the Dallas and Burbank bureaus, NBC News employees in Washington, DC are beginning to feel the effects of cuts that will trim the global NBCU workforce by 3% or about 500 jobs.

Corke_12.4.jpgTVNewser confirms veteran correspondent Bob Faw will be leaving as will relative newcomer Kevin Corke (pictured). Faw joined NBC in 1994. Before NBC, he was with CBS News for 17 years.

Corke joined NBC from ESPN in 2004 and has covered the White House for NBC News and MSNBC. He also occasionally anchored on MSNBC.

Corke used his Facebook status to deliver the news to friends with an update at 10:29am. He wrote, “Kevin just got laid off! So why is he still smiling?” So, far 27 friends have commented on the status ranging from, “I hope your kidding!” to “I am mortified!!! I will follow you anywhere my man!!! You’re a HUGE LOSS!!!”

TVNewser has learned four employees who worked for Dateline out of the DC bureau have also been cut.

> Update: Jeannie Ohm, who was also a White House and, previously, Pentagon correspondent, has been let go.
