RADIO FREE EUROPE/RADIO LIBERTY Pres./CEO STEVE KORN has resigned from his post, effective JANUARY 25th.
KORN informed the BROADCASTING BOARD OF GOVERNORS of his decision in a message that cites personal reasons for the resignation, noting that he could not move his family to the stations' PRAGUE base and had promised his son that he would move back home permanently in time for the boy's 16th birthday in FEBRUARY. He also pointed out that his elderly father is ill and "I am simply no longer willing to spend his last years separated by 5,000 miles and six time zones."
