ABC News Hit With Layoffs as Part of Disney Cuts
Radio Disney to Shut Down as Disney Undergoes New Round of Layoffs
ABC News has laid off a percentage of staff in the low single digits on Thursday as part of ongoing cuts across the Walt Disney Company, a source familiar with the matter told TheWrap.
An ABC News spokesperson declined to comment on the number of staffers laid off.
Earlier on Thursday, TheWrap reported that Disney was shuttering Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country as part of ongoing restructuring across the company. The 36 affected full- and part-time employees were notified Thursday and will all be laid off in February 2021.
Last month, Disney announced it was planning to lay off 32,000 employees — mostly from its theme parks division — in the first half of 2021.
