A number of employees were laid off at ABC News yesterday as part of Disney's overall restructuring plan. It's unknown exactly how many layoffs occurred, though a source told Deadline the number was a "low single digit" percentage of the division's 1,400 employees. A number of unknown cuts were also made across Disney's General Entertainment divisions. This likely included cuts at Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country, which announced that they would cease operations in early 2021.
- Disney-owned ESPN announced in November it would lay off 300 employees, 6% of its global workforce. ESPN host Dan Le Batard, who has criticized the network and his superiors this year, will depart in January.
- Disney will lay off an additional 32,000 employees in its Parks, Experiences and Resorts division by March.
