Voice of Russia

Jill Dougherty, writing for CNN.com:

"So far, Americans can hear Voice of Russia on 1430 AM in New York and on 1390 AM in Washington. VOR Chairman Andrey Bistritskiy said at a news conference announcing the new venture that the aim is to "speak to the Americans in their language," offering more choices in voices for Americans."

Voice of Russia. They've been broadcasting to the US via shortwave since the days of Stalin. Now they have morning and afternoon drive-time programming from a studio in Washington, DC.
