UN Radio News Service Folding Into English Radio Unit

ALL ACCESS has learned that the UN RADIO NEWS SERVICE is being downsized and folded into the UN English radio unit.
An e-mail from the UNITED NATIONS radio service's JERRY PIASECKI told colleagues that the move is being made due to a funding reduction, and PIASECKI will not continue with the effort. The combined operation, unlike the UNRNS, will not specifically be targeted towards American broadcasters.
