The website for America Abroad Media (AAM) was started in 2002, and the organization is committed to a philosophy of independent journalism. It is broadcast on National Public Radio in the U.S., and on NPR Worldwide in 145 countries. In the "About AAM" section, their mission states, "America Abroad is the only public radio program that devotes an hour to a single issue-providing historical context and international perspective." Currently running radio "Programs" and those available in the archives can be found in the "Radio" link at the top of the page. The "Education" link provides educational outreach programs developed for college and university-level students. Each impressive program is a module that uses a multimedia approach to its subjects of study. The modules focus on the Middle Eastern countries of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Turkey. Radio and television interviews are utilized in the modules, and a diverse group of experts, including artists, politicians, academics and policy makers are interviewed. Visitors interested in listening to AAM should check out the link "Find a Station" to see where it can be heard in the U.S., by city and state.
