U.S. Agency for Global Media press release:

New name, same mission

22 August 2018

On August 22, 2018, the Broadcasting Board of Governors changed
its name to the United States Agency for Global Media.

The new name better explains to constituents the work and
significance of the Agency and its networks.

USAGM remains committed to objective journalism. Insulated by a
firewall from political influence, its networks serve as a
credible free press in countries that lack one, while presenting
a rigorously honest picture of the U.S. around the world.

Through its international programming, USAGM supports democracy
and press freedom. It counters misinformation and propaganda. And
in doing so, it serves a vital role in U.S. public diplomacy and
national security.


Kim's note: The broadcasting entities under the BBG, now USAGM,
are Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Radio Free
Asia, Office of Cuba Broadcasting (Radio and TV Martí), and
Middle East Broadcasting Networks (Alhurra TV and Radio Sawa,
both in Arabic).
