Staffers in the Los Angeles Times newsroom expect the the next wave of forced departures to come down today, along with revelations of colleagues who choose this moment to retire or take the severance money and run. Most guesses I'm hearing put the number at more than 50, with the editor ranks expected to take the heaviest hit. These are the delayed execution (second memo) of the previously foretold exits tied loosely to the demise of the daily California section. If the talk among Timesers is correct (and frankly, it usually is about these things), there will be names that resonate.
Telemundo's Channel 52 had layoffs in Burbank, including producers, editors, reporter Juan Carlos Gonzalez, sports anchor Mauricio Cárdenas and weathercaster Carolina Dávalos, according to Veronica Villafañe's Media Moves blog.
