On The Communicators, Director of the Voice of America (VOA), David Ensor, discusses how the U.S. government-funded national and international news and information network is changing. Ensor discusses how VOA works, how it has changed since it was established in 1942, and the platforms on which it currently operates. VOA is gradually ending broadcasts to China and is planning to expand its internet and social media broadcasting instead.
VOA is one of five broadcast services of the Broadcasting Board of Governors. The others are Radio Free Europe, Radio Free Asia, Alhurra, and Radio and TV Marti.
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.
