Radio turmoil

HEAD of the public broadcaster Slovak Radio (SRo) Jaroslav Rezník fired several reporters who recently criticized plans by the radio's editor in chief (EIC), citing rationalization at the radio as the reason behind the move.

The reporters, among which are the radio's leading journalists, believe that they will have to go as of January because they criticized plans for changes designed to increase the radio's audience by EIC Karol Farkašovský.

"The sacking is a reaction to our criticism," one of the reporters, Nora Gubková, said to the Slovak daily SME.

Rezník maintained that there was nothing personal behind the move.
