WGNO New Orleans Lays Off Eight Staffers

Multiple news layoffs on- and off-camera accompany the expansion Monday evening of the Tribune ABC affiliate’s almost-year-old News with a Twist brand into the 5 p.m. time slot, in addition to its current 6 p.m. time slot. Gone are Jessica Holly, Glynn Boyd, Kristina Pink and Christian Jennings, plus four photographers. Also gone is the station’s 6:30 p.m. newscast, which Holly once anchored.
