Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Asks Listeners What Radio Means To Them

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty has nearly 13.5 million estimated weekly listeners across our broadcast region in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Why do they listen and what does radio mean to them?

We put out the call on our radio programs asking our listeners what radio means to them, and the response was overwhelming. We'll be tweeting what they have to say from Feb. 10-13. We'll also have special interviews with some of our most popular radio hosts and producers, including the producer of our one-hour live FM show broadcast to war-torn eastern Ukraine, and our popular Majlis podcast covering Central Asia will dedicate this week's round table discussion to the impact of radio as a vital information platform in the region.
