ESPN is laying off another 150 staffers today


ESPN is laying off "approximately 150" staffers on Wednesday, according to a memo its president sent to employees.

"We appreciate their contributions, and will assist them as much as possible in this difficult moment with severance, a 2017 bonus, the continuation of health benefits and outplacement services," ESPN President John Skipper wrote in the memo to employees, which the network posted online.

"The majority of the jobs eliminated are in studio production, digital content, and technology and they generally reflect decisions to do less in certain instances and re-direct resources," the memo said.

ESPN laid off about 100 employees in the spring, including on-air personalities John Clayton and Trent Dilfer.

Wednesday's layoffs amount to about two percent of ESPN's workforce, according to CNN.
