Institutional Award: Voice of America for Promotion of International Understanding

Voice of America

While the major purpose of the Voice of America is “to help achieve United States foreign policy objectives,” it also contributes markedly toward better understanding of this nation, its people and its culture. It secures its largest global audiences with outstanding coverage of such spectacular American scientific achievements as flight of the Apollo XI. It regularly services most of the world in 36 languages with news and American viewpoints. And it provides contact with American personalities and cultural manifestations through Music USA, New York, New York, and the coverage of sports and special cultural happenings. In recognition, a Peabody Award for radio promotion of international understanding.
