Trying to identify a very short story (maybe four pages) about a boy trying to figure out how radio works, finally dismantling the machine to discover a small news reporter inside...

I've read in 1980s in a Czech translation. The original language is most likely English or Russian.

    @Aegon If the question is too broad, there must be lots of very short stories about a boy who dismantles a radio and finds a small news reporter inside. Could you kindly name 2 or 3 of them? I'm ashamed to admit it, but I'm having a hard time coming up with even one, even lthough I've been reading science fiction and fantasy for 70 years. – user14111 Dec 11 '16 at 22:27

    @CHEESE You say the question is "too broad", it has "too many possible answers". Please name some of them. Very short stories about a boy finding a small news reporter inside a radio. Not a novelette about a boy finding a news reporter in a radio, not a short story about a girl or a grown man finding a news reporter in a radio, not a short story about a boy finding a disk jockey in a radio, not a short story about a boy finding a news reporter in a TV set; it has to be a short story about a boy finding a news reporter in a radio. – user14111 Dec 12 '16 at 0:29
