"Seoul has three privately run radio stations targeting the North: Open Radio for North Korea, Radio Free Chosun and Kim's FNK, the only one run by defectors, who are helped by a committed South Korean staff." ... Kim Yun-tae, director of Radio Free Chosun: "'At first we were doing more propaganda broadcasting, but we changed our minds,' he said. Added Kyounghee An, the station's international manager, 'We don't think we can cause the collapse of the regime directly. . . . We think after listening, people can compare their real situation to Kim Jong Il's propaganda and can change their minds, step by step.'" Washington Post, 30 December 2007.
