Next out at LA Weekly: Ella Taylor

Longtime film writer Ella Taylor was told today that she too is being laid off by the LA Weekly, sources say. On top of the earlier news about Steven Leigh Morris, the Weekly's coverage is taking a big hit this week.

For what it's worth, here's all that's left of the Weekly's online staff box, minus the recent exits.

Editor Laurie Ochoa
Deputy Editor Jill Stewart
Senior Features Editor Tom Christie
Film Editor Scott Foundas
Music Editor Randall Roberts
Theater Editor Steven Leigh Morris
Web Editor Erin Broadley
Staff Writers Gendy Alimurung, Marc Cooper, Patrick Range McDonald, Steven Mikulan, Libby Molyneaux, Christine Pelisek, Ella Taylor
Assistant to the Editor Erica Zora Wrightson
Assistant Listings Editors Falling James, Derek Thomas
Editorial Assistant Siran Babayan
Copy Editors Karre Jacobs, Susan Love Loughmiller, Mel Yiasemide
Columnists Nikki Finke, Rockie Gardiner, Jonathan Gold, Lina Lecaro, Seven McDonald

I would guess it used to be double that size or more. Gardiner died in October.
