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.
