CNN: RFE/RL Is 'World-Changing Radio'

As part of its week-long coverage of the twentieth anniversary of the "Velvet Revolution", CNN International (CNNi) correspondent Phil Black interviewed several RFE personalities, including President Jeffrey Gedmin, former Czechoslovak Service Director Pavel Pechacek, Radio Azadi Director Akbar Ayazi, and Central News senior correspondent Golnaz Esfandiari.

The piece can be viewed on CNNi's website. The segment reviews the role RFE played in providing live, uncensored coverage of the tumultuous events in Prague of November 1989 and looks at the work RFE/RL is doing today to bring free media to places like Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan.
