The BBG operates one of the world's largest news media networks, bringing news, information, and relevant discussions to a weekly audience of over 278 million people worldwide, in over 100 countries in over 60 languages via radio, television, Internet, and social media. The BBG network is comprised of five major international broadcasters: the Voice of America (VOA), Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Radio and Television Marti, Radio Free Asia, and the Middle East Broadcast Networks. Our networks carry out a shared mission vital to U.S. national interests: "to inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy." Our agency is unique in the federal government: we create, produce, and broadcast news around the world. We do so for people whose governments limit or block their people's access to a free press, or who simply lack sources of reliable news on events in their own countries, the United States, or around the world. A statutory firewall ensures that Agency has editorial independence, meaning our news is free from any partisan or political interference, and adheres to the "highest professional standards" of journalism. We develop and utilize cutting edge software and IT tools to get through the firewalls of countries like Iran and China which seek to block their people's access to news and information

The practice of law of BBG is unique within the federal government.

  • The BBG is primarily a news organization, meaning that all BBG OGC attorneys gain expertise in the practice of media law, supporting journalists operating around the globe. In that regard, OGC deals with those matters that impact all media organizations, including intellectual property and licensing; transmission of our content via terrestrial antenna, satellite, internet, and social media; and press freedom and first amendment issues.
  • We are also a government agency and so our practice also deals with the multitude of legal issues that any government law office deals, including federal contracting; federal employment and labor law; appropriation and fiscal law; grant law; and FOIA and ethics.
  • We operate around the world, which means that we routinely deal with matters of foreign law and international law, including matters foreign labor law, foreign litigation; trade and economic sanctions; and international agreements.
  • Finally, our agency is also officially part of the United States Foreign Policy community. We work closely with the State Department, who is represented on our board; USAID; and in a number of instances DoD and local combatant commanders; and well as NSC/WH.
