The list we have so far includes:

Anne Mroczowski
Laura Di Battista
Pam Seatle
Marian Dimain
Merella Fernandez
Farah Nasser
Michael Serapio
2 graphics
4 producers
2 assignment producers
7 camera
6 editors

We'll have more details here as we get them.

UPDATE 1

Lots of Twitter action on this one.

CTV PR

Follow the conversation here. The best tweet has to go to the CTV PR department (see screenshot of retweet below) who I guess had second thoughts and subsequently deleted the tweet from their Twitter feed.

UPDATE 2

Also, the noon and 5pm news shows are gone as is some weekend news and City News International.

UPDATE 3

CP24 just announced they have expanded their local news coverage
