In a major restructuring, cable channel Current TV–co-founded by Al Gore–has laid off 80 employees, about 25% of its staff.

Most of the axed were based in the Los Angeles office, affecting in-house production and striking a yet another blow to the city’s already suffering entertainment industry. The original programs “Current Tonight,” “Current Takeover” and “Current Exposed” have been canceled and David Neumann, the head of programming was fired. About 300 employees total remain.
