Voice of America

To be effective in communicating directly with peoples of the world, the Voice of America must win the attention and respect of its listeners. Even-handed, factual reporting of world news, and public affairs programming in music, literature, science, lectures, and documentaries on the American scene achieve these goals. This citation particularly honors the selfless contribution of Garry Moore, who gives of his notable talents, experience, and knowledge, weekly on VOA’s New York, New York, a kaleidoscope of our nation reflected through the prisms of New York City, its people and its visitors.
