Cox Center Director Advises Washington Board

Cox Center Director Dr. Lee B. Becker provided expert advice to the Broadcasting Board of Governors in Washington in September on the Board's methodology for reviewing U.S. international radio and television broadcasting.

The Broadcasting Board of Governors supervises Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Radio Free Asia, Radio and Television Marti and Worldnet Television. Included are 61 discrete language services reaching an estimated worldwide weekly audience of 110 million.

Dr. Becker was asked to critique the method used by the Board of Governors to assess its services and offer suggestions regarding alternative strategies.
