National Public Radio is cutting two daily shows and the majority of its Culver City-based NPR West staff as part of companywide layoffs and program cuts announced today.

Both Day to Day and News and Notes will go off the air March 20 and the 34 journalists working on the shows -- and 30 more NPR employees companywide -- will lose their jobs.
