CNN's Headline News channel cuts NYC shows, staff

CNN is bringing its Headline News brand (HLN) to its headquarters in Atlanta. The move affects jobs in New York due to the network's cutting of three shows, including “Across America with Carol Costello,” “Michaela” and “Crime & Justice with Ashleigh Banfield.” About 15 jobs have been eliminated as a result.  “We will shift some of our resources from live to long-form programming and produce our live shows in as streamlined a manner as possible,” HLN boss Ken Jautz said. “The best way to do this is to centralize production of live news programming in Atlanta.” Meade’s “Morning Express,” which has been based at CNN Center since 2001, will be expanded to 6 a.m. to noon from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. while “On the Story” will add an hour and go from noon to 3 p.m. starting October 29.
