Report: CityGrid Lays Off Two Thirds Of Staff

A report this morning says that West Hollywood-based CityGrid, the parent firm of CitySearch, Urbanspoon, and InsiderPages, has laid off two thirds of its staff. The layoffs--reported by TechCrunch--reportedly affected 130 people. It's unclear how many of those staff are based in Los Angeles, but CityGrid has a significant presence in the LA area. The new cuts follow an earlier layoff in October of 2012, which also resulted in the loss of a number of positions in Los Angeles.
