The U.S. Agency for Global Media is an independent federal agency that seeks to inform, engage and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy.
Journalists are not criminals, they provide a public good. Reporters expose corruption, provide life-saving information and uncover the truth when those in power try to hide it. High-quality journalism democratizes the world as much as it informs it.
Every week, more than 345 million listeners, viewers and internet users around the world turn on, tune in and log onto U.S. international broadcasting programs. The day-to-day broadcasting activities are carried out by the individual USAGM international broadcasters.
