Public radio plans layoffs

STATE run Slovak Radio (SRo) will lay off 90 people by the end of this year as part of savings measures adopted by the public broacaster.

SRo currently employs 1,120 people. According to the radio's head, Jaroslav Rezník, and the broadcaster's management, the lay offs will save the radio about Sk18 million (€429,000) in the coming nine months.

Another reason for releasing employees is the changing organisational structure in the radio's second broacaster, Radio Devín.
