About Voice of America
As a news organization, Voice of America has a long and storied history that dates back to the Second World War. During that conflict, the VOA broadcast news programs in multiple languages to locations such as Tunis, Palermo, Germany, Italy, and many others, with the promise to tell the truth, countering propaganda efforts by the Nazis and their allies.
Despite the VOA’s role during WWII and the cold war, many Americans know little of the venerable broadcasting organization. Why? Because, unlike many news organizations, the VOA is intended almost exclusively for foreign countries/audiences.
Today, the Voice of America the largest U.S. International broadcaster, providing major news stories to countries around the globe in multiple languages. American news enthusiasts who want to see the articles the VOA posts can check them out on the VOA’s website, where they can read articles in English, Burmese, Arabic, Russian, Spanish, French, and many more languages.
