Washington, D.C. — WASHINGTON—The United States Agency for Global Media (USAGM) leadership today has accepted the resignation of Office of Cuba Broadcasting (OCB) Director Tomás Regalado.
Prior to joining OCB in June 2018, Mr. Regalado served the people of Miami as a journalist, City Commissioner and two-term Mayor. His unique experience and background were called upon to extend TV and Radio Martís’ reach during a critical time in U.S.-Cuban relations.
During his tenure Mr. Regalado developed a new satellite broadcast strategy, expanded digital and social media content, and supported the creation of unique content on topics not typically covered in Cuban media, including LGBTQ rights, climate change and the contributions of the Cuban-American community.
USAGM’s steadfast support for OCB’s mission to provide accurate and reliable information to the people of Cuba remains unwavering, as does its commitment to Martís’ staff and journalists.
Deputy Director Emilio Vázquez will serve as Acting Director. Director of Technical Operations Francisco Chong will serve as Acting Deputy Director of OCB.
USAGM thanks Director Regalado for his service.
