Voice of America

The Voice of America (VOA) is the official external broadcast institution of the United States federal government. The VOA provides programming for broadcast on radio, TV, and the Internet outside of the U.S., in English and some foreign languages. A 1976 law signed by PresidentGerald Ford requires the VOA to "serve as a consistently reliable and authoritative source of news."
 The VOA Charter states:

"VOA news will be accurate, objective and comprehensive."

 The Voice of America headquarters is located at 330Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC, 20237, U.S. The Voice of America is fully funded by the U.S. government. The United States Congress appropriates funds for it annually under the same budget for embassies and consulates.

VOA radio and television broadcasts are distributed by satellite, cable and on FM, AM, and shortwave radiofrequencies.
