New York Daily News gossip writer Sean Evans—one half of the paper's Gatecrasher column—has been let go, we confirmed this afternoon.

Evans and Laura Schreffler brought back Gatecrasher as the paper's flagship gossip brand last December, after Jo Piazza left the Daily News.

Sean told us his career prospects are fine and that "I haven't slept better" in years.

We also hear that one of the people the Daily News is interested in luring in to join its gossip beat is man-profiler Spencer Morgan, recently laid off from the New York Observer.
