Anxious viewers of the IBA News in English, who discovered to their consternation that the program was blacked out on Thursday of last week and Sunday of this week, can take comfort in the knowledge that the program is scheduled to resume on Monday.

A spokesman for the Israel Broadcasting Authority told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that large-scale resignations, officially termed voluntary early retirement, has taken a toll on programming and instant solutions cannot always be found for problems resulting from lack of staff.

Among the departments most gravely hit by voluntary early retirement of human resources was the IBA English News that lost all of its permanent staff with the exception of two people.
