From the CEO

USAGM’s COVID-19 response

I applaud our journalists, editors and staff for engaging their audiences and finding new and creative ways to keep people informed. But even as we continue to bring information to the people who need it most, we are also monitoring developments to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff around the world.

““You can say that your program speaks to our hearts and in the middle of the long lingering night, it lets us see the hope of a free China. History will never forget you— Radio Free Asia—and the Chinese people who live under the dictatorial rule and long for freedom and democracy will thank you.””
