Layoffs are coming to ESPN's production unit this week, according to several sources. A tipster told me this morning that "tension is at an all time high in production operations," and the cuts will begin tomorrow.
ESPN started cutting jobs in late May, mostly in its technology group and in several regional offices. No one saw them coming. These layoffs are expected to continue throughout the summer, all in this drip-drip-drip manner. In all, ESPN will cut somewhere between 300 and 400 jobs.
