(Poynter.org) CNN and HLN “laid off more than 40 senior journalists in its newsgathering operation” at the end of 2013, Matthew Garrahan reports in the Financial Times.

The cuts “coincide with changes to the network’s programming,” Garrahan writes. CNN President Jeff Zucker “has hired new presenters and diversified CNN’s output, adding documentary and reality series to its traditional live news coverage.”

The layoffs were concentrated in Washington, Atlanta and Los Angeles, Garrahan reports.
