HLN’s Valerie Butler laid off

The executive producer of HLN’s Weekend Express with Lynn Berry has been laid off, I’ve just been informed. She was one of the few remaining African-American EPs remaining at CNN.

This occurred as the NABJ is “concerned” about diversity in CNN’s leadership.

UPDATE: An HLN spokesperson has confirmed to me that Weekend Express is safe, and that there are no current plans to hire a replacement EP.
