Israel's English Radio To Stay; TV Future Uncertain

Ha'aretz reports:

The Israel Broadcasting Authority decided Monday not to cancel its English-language radio news broadcasts, despite earlier threats due to cost-saving measures. The future of IBA television news broadcasts, however, remains unclear. . .

IBA English News editor Steve Leibowitz expressed his concern over the possible closure. "We're the one [English-language] voice that presents an Israeli perspective on television, and now they want to eliminate that voice," Leibowitz said. "It doesn't make any sense, especially considering the other options like CNN, Al Jazeera and the BBC."
