Agency/Author Bio

Voice of America (VOA) produces popular news, information and cultural programs in 45 languages and reaches more than 164 million people around the world every week on television, radio, web and mobile platforms.

VOA attracts 80 percent of the total U.S. international media audience.  In countries with strict censorship, such as Iran or North Korea, VOA is often the only source of balanced news and information about the U.S., its policies and its people. 

VOA provides a forum for open debate, as well as an opportunity to question newsmakers and U.S. officials, through call-in shows and web interactives. Its programs are guided by a legally mandated Charter that requires them to be accurate, objective and comprehensive.

From its Washington headquarters, VOA produces more than 70 television shows, and more than 200 radio programs. VOA’s digital TV master control sends signals to multiple direct-to-home satellite networks simultaneously, and shortwave, FM and AM transmitters beam VOA to hot spots around the world.  Individual language services each maintain their own websites, mobile platforms and social media sites.
