Voice of America calls out to new region

Dispatch

NEW YORK — Voice of America launched a daily Armenian-language TV feed this month for Armenians in their own country and across Europe and the Middle East.

VOA, which is partnering with Armenia TV, recently ended its Armenian radio broadcasts, saying a TV feed would reach more people.

Armenia TV will air “Amerikai dzain herustahandes” (VOA TV Magazine) during its weekday newscasts, as well as a 30-minute block of VOA programming on Saturday.

VOA director David Jackson said the feed was especially important as Armenia developed into a more “open and democratic civil society.” VOA is the U.S. government’s chief propaganda arm overseas.

According to a recent survey, 97% of Armenians rely on television for news. Armenia TV reaches 52% of viewers between the ages of 25 and 50. It is also available via satellite in Western Europe and the Middle East.
