VOA’s New Studio Tour

Come visit us and see what we do

In April, VOA opened a new public Studio Tour to give visitors a live behind-the-scenes look at our radio, television, and Internet production.

The free tour offers a unique combination of new technology along with the human touch. A tour guide leads each group of visitors, offering insight and answering questions, while additional tour information is conveyed in a radio broadcast delivered through headsets. This ensures that everyone hears the entire presentation.

“This gives our visitors the flavor of a VOA radio broadcast, and an entertaining way to learn about VOA’s history and highlights,” explains VOA Director David Jackson. During the 45-minute tour, visitors see many of VOA’s award-winning websites, and watch our broadcasters produce live radio and television. “Our visitors will leave with a real appreciation of how we do what we do, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” says tour manager Andrea Tadic, a former Croatian Service broadcaster.
