VOA Broadcasting in Creole to Haiti

VOA Creole provides news and information about Haiti, the Haitian diaspora, the U.S. and the world by collaborating with local affiliate stations who cannot afford to acquire such programming on their own. Due to Haiti's proximity and the United States' long- standing role in the country, audiences have an appetite for information about the U.S., its people, policies and the U.S.- based Haitian diaspora, which, without VOA, would go unfilled. The service brings credibility and objectivity to coverage of local events that is not present in a very politicized Haitian media market. Along with radio, the web and social media, VOA Creole broadcasts on radio and radio- on-TV Monday through Friday.
