Afghan Broadcasters in Yuma

October 10, 2011

More than 150 Community radio stations have hit the airwaves of Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban in 2002 and many received start-up money from the US Government.  But has that money dries up, what happens to these community broadcasters? 

To figure that out, a group of Afghani Broadcasters traveled to the US in September to learn what they could from broadcasters here.  From KAWC in Yuma, Lou Gum caught up with them on the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona.

Those same broadcasters visited the KJZZ/KBAQ studios - pictures of their tour can be found HERE.
