C-Span, The Communicators, 22 Nov 2011: "Carlos Garcia-Perez talked about U.S. government-sponsored broadcasts to Cuba. Radio broadcasts into the communist-ruled country began in 1985, television broadcasts in 1990 , and they are known as Radio and TV Marti. The broadcasts are jammed by the Cuban government and some in Congress argue that the future of TV Marti in particular is in question because viewership is small, compared with U.S. broadcasts to other countries, and news from other Western-based news operations appears to be available. This week 'The Communicators' airs the third in a series about U.S. Government-sponsored broadcasts to other countries. These broadcasts are services of the Broadcasting Board of Governors."

C-Span, The Communicators, 19 Nov 2011: "Brian Conniff talked about the mission of U.S. government-backed broadcasts into the Middle East via Alhurra and Radio Sawa. Topics included changes since their launch in 2004 and 2002, their role in the popular Arab uprisings during Spring 2011, and challenges to broadcasting into the Middle East. Alhurra and Radio Sawa are among the broadcast services of the Broadcasting Board of Governors. The others are Voice of America, Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty, Radio Free Asia, and Radio and TV Marti. This week's 'The Communicators' is the second in a series about U.S. Government-sponsored broadcasts to other countries."

C-Span, The Communicators, 6 Sept 2011: "Director of the Voice of America (VOA) David Ensor discussed changes in the U.S. government-funded national and international news and information network. This week's 'The Communicators' is the first in a series about U.S. Government-sponsored broadcasts to other countries."

Are presidents of RFE/RL and Radio Free Asia next to be interviewed by C-Span?
