We’re Still on the Air
Although the Ethiopian government is jamming our Amharic, Afan Oromo and Tigrigna language broadcasts, we’re still delivering balanced and up-to-date news from Ethiopia. Amharic news airs seven nights a week, Afan Oromo and Tigrigna five nights a week. And now, at 6 a.m. in Ethiopia, Amharic delivers a rebroadcast of election highlights. To learn more check out our frequencies under Radio Program Information.
We’d like Ethiopians around the world to tell your family and friends back home that we’re still broadcasting. Tell them to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on our 'Today from VOA Amharic' newsletter. Tell them to put Send Me Your Newsletter in the subject line and include your name, cell number, and postal address.
