Briefly, June 30 was a good day for US international broadcasting. Alan Heil tells us the Senate confirmed the approved all eight nominees for the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) last night. They should be sworn in soon. Also, the bill to permanently authorize Radio Free Asia passed the House yesterday. The next step is President Obama’s signature to make it a law.

One thought on “BBG nominees confirmed and Radio Free Asia bill passes House”
Just a few weeks ago, it really looked like Coburn would be able to keep the BBG confirmations at bay until after the recess. What does this development mean for the rest of the content in the SFRC report on broadcasting and U.S. public diplomacy? http://budgetinsight.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/is-anybody-listening-sfrc-report-weighs-in-on-the-bbg/
