Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), funded by US government grants, broadcasts news and current affairs programs daily in 23 languages to a regular audience of 20 million listeners across Central Europe and the former Soviet Union. RFE/RL concentrates on developments within its audience countries. News and analysis from within the region is edited and produced by RFE/RL according to the highest standards of Western current affairs broadcasting. Programs are broadcast on shortwave and, increasingly, on AM and FM networks and individual private stations throughout the broadcast area.
The RFE/RL Web site includes excerpts of RFE/RL broadcast stories in print, and live Internet broadcasts. Site content includes news, features and analyses, Real Audio news feeds, Western press reviews, and daily reports, and special reports.
RFE/RL Special Reports can be one of essentially two types -- a collection of news and features about an important news event or a multi-part report on an issue such as intellectual piracy in Eastern Europe. The topics vary and should be of interest to many people. Some of the recent media-related topics have been:
- Russian Media Empires a comprehensive table of Russian media empires. Their table identifies government and business entities that are most involved in the media market, along with which print and electronic media they control. Links to related stories are available at the bottom of the page.
- The Internet And The East: A Survey Outlines the problems facing former NIS nations that are trying to get on-line. Includes survey and articles on their progress. Links to related stories are available at the bottom of the page.
