NEWS BRIEFS

Slovak Radio announces lay-offs

THE PUBLIC broadcaster, Slovak Radio (SRo), announced plans to close down its short-wave foreign language service, the SITA news agency reported.

SRo's public relations spokesman Jozef Bednár told the press that management had decided to take this radical step to cut costs and to compensate for lost revenues from the non-payment of licence fees and unpaid money due from the state budget.

The cutbacks mean that 84 people will be laid off as of July 31, 2005. This will result in an historical minimum of 825 employees for the public broadcaster.
