Voice of America (VOA) is the official external radio and television broadcasting service of the United States federal government. Its oversight entity is the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG). VOA provides a wide range of programming for broadcast on radio, TV and the Internet around the world in forty-four languages, promoting a positive view of the United States.
The Voice of America was the name given to the radio broadcasting station which operated in Grantville. The name was kept even after the formation of the United States of Europe and the transformation of the New United States into the State of Thuringia-Franconia.
Unlike its up-time namesake, the Voice of America was primarily a commercial, advertising-supported enterprise.
