Layoffs Said to Rock Los Angeles Times

A media news site reports there were major layoffs at the Los Angeles Times today.

Fishbowl LA does not get into specifics with numbers.

However, some of the names mentioned after the jump will shock longtime readers.

They include: columnist Tim Rutten, NBA writer Mark Heisler and assistant business editor Sharon Bernstein.

" We're told the Calendar section will largely be spared, losing mainly expense and freelance budgets," writes Fishbowl's Matthew Fleisher. "But that 'features (health, travel, food etc) is getting hit harder.'"

More sad news is said to be coming.
