June 9, 2011 at 7:00 AM (PT)
VOICE OF RUSSIA (VOR) Radio has launched two U.S. stations in NEW YORK and WASHINGTON, D.C. The new stations will air live programming with the Russian perspective on international news, culture, arts and events over 1430 AM and 1390 AM frequency, respectively. The stations mark the first time VOR will produce programming directly from the U.S. rather than broadcasting news from the MOSCOW-based radio program.
"This is a very significant move for VOICE OF RUSSIA because it is the first time in the history of the station that material being broadcast to the NORTH AMERICAN market will actually originate and be produced locally," said VOR Chairman ANDREI BYSTRITSKY.
