Radio stations to close
Sunday 21 February 1993
An internal Voice of America document said the two stations, which cost dollars 207m ( pounds 147m) last year, would be phased out as part of Mr Clinton's cost-cutting. According to the VOA memo, Mr Clinton will retain TV Marti, which transmits to Cuba but is largely ineffective because of Cuban jamming. But Mr Clinton will not launch a Radio Free Asia - which was to have been beamed at China and other Asian countries that do not have Western-style democracies - even though such a service was proposed by the Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, during his confirmation hearings.
