On The Communicators, Carlos Garcia-Perez, director of the Office of Cuba Broadcasting, which runs Radio and TV Marti, discusses the U. S. -backed news and information channel intended for Cuba.
The broadcasts are "jammed" by the Cuban government and some in Congress argue that the mission of TV Marti is ineffective because viewership is small. Some also say that the broadcast standards have not been adhered to and that the Miami-based operation should be merged in to the Voice of America.
This is the third of a three-part series on U. S. -backed international broadcasting. In part one, The Communicators spoke with David Ensor, director of Voice of America, and Brian Conniff, president of Middle East Broadcasting Networks, including Radio Sawa, Alhurra TV and Alhurra-Iraq, joined the program for part two.
The Communicators airs Saturday at 6:30 pm ET on C‑SPAN and Monday at 8 am and 8 pm ET on C‑SPAN 2.
