The CBS station in L.A. was not immune from the nation-wide, cost-cutting layoffs… and news of the casualties came in late in the day on Tuesday.
Reporter Jaime Garza was among the employees eliminated from the station’s payroll. An insider says the staffers were escorted out of the building. The L.A. Times reports about a dozen people were laid-off, including anchors Harold Greene and Ann Martin.
Jaime was originally hired by KCAL 9 in 1995 and became part of the KCBS team when Viacom/CBS bought KCAL in 2002. Prior to moving to L.A., Jaime worked as anchor/reporter in Las Vegas and Sacramento.
It is unbelievable that cbs fired Jaime one of the most known and credible reporter in Los Angeles … I also think that action was racist and inexplicable , and i will never watch cbs an kcal again al least they understand what the audience really want to see..
Jaime I am with u …
Please, Please, Please . . . . . Whatever you do, How ever you do it, Please . . . Please . . . Please . . . Don’t fire Jackie Johnson. I cannot live without her Weather Forecast.

I, for one, am shocked and disappointed that Jaimie Garza was let go. He was one of my favorite anchors I always looked forward to seeing in the afternoons. Hopefully, he’ll wind up on Fox or KTLA. I miss you, Jaime!
