VOA: VOA News in 53 Languages

The Voice of America (VOA) began broadcasting in 1942, with the expressed object of providing accurate, objective, and reliable news to people in closed or war-torn societies. VOA has continued to evolve through the postwar, Cold War, and now post-Cold War eras, and presently produces and broadcasts over 900 hours of news and information programs each week in 53 languages to a worldwide audience of 91 million. In addition to shortwave, AM, and FM radio and satellite television, VOA news is available online at the VOANews site. Here visitors will find the top international stories as well as the lead stories in seven regions of the world. Correspondent reports and feature stories by topic are also available. In addition, the site links to live news Webcasts and information pages for the myriad VOA language services.
