turnerTurner Broadcasting, the parent company of CNN, will cut its total workforce by about 10% in the coming weeks through a mix of buyouts, layoffs and other measures, the company said Monday. The reductions are part of a broader effort to save money and refocus investment, known internally as Turner 2020. The company said about 1,475 positions — out of 14,000 full-time positions worldwide — would be eliminated in the coming weeks. Within CNN Worldwide, where the workforce totals roughly 3,500, about 300 positions will be cut, according to a person with direct knowledge of the plan, totaling 8.5%. CNN Worldwide includes CNN’s U.S. and International television channels, HLN, CNN Digital, and other ventures. About 130 of the CNN reductions are being achieved through voluntary buyouts, the person said. A buyout program for Turner staffers age 55 and older with ten-plus years at the company was announced in August.
