Axe Swings at NBC News


Word is that "9 or 10" staffers at The Today Show were handed their walking papers earlier Today. 

One staffer said that they were told the show was "restructuring" and that they were now out of a job.  

The source says other people were called in as well and given the same news. 

We also hear that staffers from NBC Nightly News were also pink slipped Today.

NBC is downplaying the cuts.
