National Public Radio has another leader following years of internal turmoil and controversy. The latest NPR chief executive is John Lansing, a former cable TV executive who for the past few years served as the topper for the U.S. Agency for Global Media, a federally funded foreign policy broadcast organization which is behind Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and my old alma matter Radio and TV Martí, where I was recruited to serve as GM-15/10 for the administration of President George HW Bush.
While I served as a federal government manager, it was then called The United States Information Agency but since then its name has changed, but the mission remains the same, which includes USA sponsored propaganda favorable to American interests.
USIA existed from 1953 to 1999 as a United States government agency devoted to public diplomacy.
National Public Radio is an American non profit privately and publicly funded membership media organization, which is also based in Washington, D.C..
