ORT Reporter Fired

MOSCOW -- Journalist Sergei Dorenko has said he will no longer host the "Vremya" daily news program on ORT television.

He said Tuesday that he did not know why the ORT management had made this decision.

Dorenko said he had been offered to host a new Saturday show on the state-owned channel starting in mid-January.

ORT's press service declined to comment on the subject.
