The way we consume news is rapidly changing and media companies are quickly changing their workflows to best utilize their resources.

It is no surprise companies will go through layoffs to cut costs and change business strategies, and ESPN has become one of the latest big news organizations to announce such plans.

ESPN president John Skipper first sent a memo to the company highlighting the changes that need to be made. ESPN later published a shorter memo written by six of Skipper’s top executives further explaining the need to change their content strategies based on how people consume news.

According to a tweet from journalist and author James Miller, the layoff process began Wednesday morning.
