ভয়েস অব আমেরিকার ৭৫তম প্রতিষ্ঠা বার্ষিকী উপলক্ষ্যে বাংলা বিভাগের পক্ষ থেকে সকলকে শুভেচ্ছা।
ভয়েস অব আমেরিকার পরিচালক Amanda Bennett এর শুভেচ্ছা বার্তা।
“Seventy-five years ago this year, Voice of America made its first broadcast. Today, we broadcast in over 45 languages, all over the world. And we broadcast in every means that people could possibly want to receive their news and information. We use radio still; we use television. We broadcast for the web, for mobile, and if new forms of communication are invented, we’ll be there too. Our mission is really really simple: we give neutral, fair, objective, independent news and information to people who have no other access to it. And we tell America’s story. And America’s story is rich and full. It goes from the entrepreneurial climate of Silicon Valley to our great universities to health and medicine and medical advances. It’s also the story of America’s diaspora, the people who came here from all over the world.
I started my journalistic career more than 50 years ago, and here today at Voice of America I remember just why I became a journalist. It’s such a privilege to be working here with the great men and women who are telling America’s story and providing neutral news and information around the world. I’m so happy to be here at Voice of America as it celebrates its 75th anniversary, and I feel proud to welcome it into the next 75 years.”
