"The president's ongoing battle against what he calls the 'oligarchic media' has added a new front. The radio program 'Suddenly with Chávez' (De Repente con Chávez) began broadcasting Feb. 8, and as its name suggests, it can go on the air at any moment, the Guardian and Times of London report. ... The new program doesn't have a set schedule and may break onto the air at any time of the day or night, Chávez says, because 'we have many things to report.' Listeners will hear a harp playing folk music, and then the president's voice." Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas, 9 February 2010.
