Major layoffs expected at Turner Broadcasting

ATLANTA -- Another round of major layoffs is expected at Turner Broadcasting, and half will likely come out of Atlanta.

The metro Chamber of Commerce says the company employs about 6,700 people, making it one of the city's top 20 employers.

Sources inside CNN say buyouts could begin later this week, with more than a thousand local layoffs to come in September and October.

Any time a company plans to layoff more than 500 people, it has to file a notice with the state. So far, Turner Broadcasting has not submitted that report.

Last week an internal memo surfaced from CEO John Martin promising to enter 2015 a more streamlined, nimble and efficient company.

Bike Lane cuts off senior drop-off zone at Atlanta Care Center

ATLANTA -- For close to 50 disabled veterans and seniors, a day at a Senior Center on Edgewood Avenue in downtown Atlanta means a day of fun activities and enjoying each other's company.

But getting to the facility has become a nightmare.

That is until one of their van drivers raised his voice.

For dozens of years, the van drivers have been dropping off disabled seniors and veterans at the Intergenerational Resource Center on Edgewood Avenue, only a few steps from the front door.

But then the City of Atlanta put in a bike lane right out front.

Off-Loading signs came down and the 15 Van drivers had no place to legally stop.
