The CEO of AMC Networks has stepped down in a shock move after just three months on the job, and the company plans to lay off about one-fifth of its US workforce as it faces pressure from streaming competitors and a slowing economy.

The cable network, home to hit shows such as Mad Men, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul announced the moves in a press release and internal memos on Tuesday.

The layoffs at AMC Networks come at a time when several media companies including Amazon and Facebook-parent Meta Platforms are making deep cuts to their employee base to navigate a potential downturn in the economy. 

AMC Chairman James Dolan blamed the large-scale layoffs on the dramatic shift away from traditional cable in favor of online streaming, a trend known as cord-cutting.

Christina Spade, who served as CEO of AMC Networks since September, 'has stepped down from her role,' the company said on Tuesday without offering further details
