On Friday the Daily News laid off television critic David Kronke, leaving the paper with a single entertainment writer in the run-up to the Oscars. Today that lone entertainment writer, Greg Hernandez, was himself laid off. LA Observed confirms the news.
*Updated Feb. 24, 9:37 a.m.: Hernandez's farewell blog is here. He says he was "officially" told he was being laid off on Monday, but I'm told he may have learned earlier and decided to devote himself to the weekend's Oscar coverage despite it all. In the post, Hernandez says he will continue his Out In Hollywood blog "as a private enterprise with fresh content later this week (details to come)."
