CNN sources are telling FTVLIve that the feared layoffs are starting to go down in CNN's DC Bureau.
Word is that around 15 people were sent packing, including CNN Political Reporter Shannon Travis, Booking Producer Stephanie Kotuby and Opinion Editor Bryan Monroe.
Also gone is Paul Steinhauser, who has covered national campaigns. He is headed to start up NH1 as a news anchor and political director starting Jan. 1.
This of the start of what is going to be a long few days at CNN.
