RFE/RL: Free Media In Unfree Societies

Our Mission

RFE/RL journalists report the news in 23 countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. We provide what many people cannot get locally: uncensored news, responsible discussion, and open debate.

23 Countries, 26 Languages

We broadcast in 26 languages to 23 countries, including Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Russia. With over 400 full-time journalists, 750 freelancers, and 17 local bureaus, RFE/RL is one of the most comprehensive news operations in the world.​

Regional Expertise

RFE/RL journalists and experts are a unique source of information about many of the world's political hot spots. We also host briefings and special events in Washington, D.C., and Prague.

On The Front Lines

Our journalists are on the front lines in the fight for media freedom in their countries and often put themselves at great risk to do their jobs.
