Broadcasting Board of Governors
“The Communicators” is C-SPAN’s weekly series that examines the people and events that shape telecommunications policy.
James Glassman was interviewed about the work of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, which oversees federally funded international broadcasting operations such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks (Alhurra TV and Radio Sawa). He talked about the Broadcasting Board’s role as an instrument of U.S. foreign policy, about the countries served, and about some of the specific programs.
