Ann Noonan, Executive Director and co-founder [phone: 646-251-6069]
Ann Noonan, Executive Director of CUSIB The Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting (CUSIB - cusib.org) has released a video of CUSIB Executive Director Ann Noonan who spoke last Friday at the open meeting of the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) in Washington, DC. Noonan made a short statement as a member of the public, in which she praised the BBG for addressing the Radio Liberty crisis in Russia, welcomed Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty new acting president Kevin Klose and called for the reinstatement of fired Radio Liberty Russian Service journalists. Noonan mentioned Klose’s meeting in Moscow last week with representatives of the fired journalists and leading Russian human rights activists and democratic politicians. Noonan made a reference to an interview with Russian media, in which controversial Radio Liberty’s Russian Service director Masha Gessen attacked Noonan and the Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting, a U.S.-based NGO. Noonan made a reference to an interview with Russian media, in which controversial Radio Liberty’s Russian Service director Masha Gessen attacked Noonan and the Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting, a U.S.-based NGO. Noonan called it an example of American grass roots democracy at work. Ann Noonan noted that Radio Liberty in Exile journalists and Russian human rights activists and opposition politicians are planning a major event in Moscow on March 1 to mark the 60th anniversary of Radio Liberty broadcasts to Russia. “We hope that by then the fired journalists will already be part of Radio Liberty’s staff and Russian human rights community will once again support this great media freedom institution,â€� Ann Noonan said. CUSIB Executive Director Ann Noonan Welcomes Appointment of Kevin Klose to Lead RFE/RL, Expresses Hope for Quick Return of Fired Journalists to Radio Liberty The Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting (CUSIB - cusib.org) Executive Director Ann Noonan welcomed the appointment of Kevin Klose to lead Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) and called for the reinstatement of fired Radio Liberty journalists. Ann Noonan expressed hope that RFE/RL will revise its personnel policies and will settle overseas discrimination lawsuits brought by former employees. She also mentioned the important work of CUSIB Advisory Board member, Ms. Jing Zhang, President of Women’s Rights in China, who was also present at the BBG meeting, and discussed the deteriorating political and human rights situation in China and Tibet. Noonan said in response to the recent GAO Report suggesting duplication in U.S.-funded broadcasts that CUSIB remains determined to defend surrogate broadcasters and the VOA at the same time because each fulfills a different role and duplication is not an issue, whereas merging surrogate broadcasters and limiting their independence and autonomy would make them ineffective in serving audiences in closed societies. Noonan also said that CUSIB remains ardently opposed to the OIG Report attacking the authority of BBG members and the tremendous efforts of BBG Governor Ambassador Victor Ashe who has made the agency relevant by insisting upon its adherence to its mission and good management. Noonan praised BBG’s latest efforts for better management and greater transparency and for resolving the Radio Liberty crisis in Russia. She congratulated Radio Liberty employees and RFE/RL acting president Kevin Klose on the approaching 60th anniversary of Radio Liberty's first broadcast. Link to Video.

CUSIB Executive Director Ann Noonan stated: "Although we appreciate today's decision by the BBG to restore Voice of America (VOA) Tibetan radio broadcasts and the Voice of America Cantonese Service, we remain concerned about how Voice of America English to Asia radio broadcasts and Voice of America Spanish and English radio, television and Internet to Latin America will be affected.

Speaking at an event last week in Flushing, NY, sponsored by the Qi's Cultural Foundation, Ann Noonan, Executive Director for the Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting (CUSIB.org), stressed the need for the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to increase funding for Voice of America (VOA) radio and TV Chinese language services, and to increase funding for Radio Free Asia (RFA).
"We need to be vigilant with these Congressionally mandated programs and be sure that the funds are used for the journalists to reach out to people inside China and Tibet, especially the poor, and not the bureaucrats in DC," Ann Noonan said. Ms. Noonan added that the Broadcasting Board of Governors needs "to allow for people inside China and Tibet to have access to news and information without being monitored by China’s government as they are with cell phones and Internet surveillance." The bulk of Ann Noonan's speech was devoted to the late Laogai Research Foundation founder Harry Wu who died last April.

 Tel. 646-251-6069 BBG Chairman thanked CUSIB's Executive Director Ann Noonan and other CUSIB members for their continued interest in monitoring the operations of the Broadcasting Board of Governors. For further information, please contact: Ann Noonan, co-founder and Executive Director Tel. 646-251-6069 In Radio Worldarticle posted online on March 31, 2015, Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting (CUSIB - cusib.org) director Ann Noonan urged the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) federal agency to promptly find a replacement for homer CEO Andy Lack who had resigned after a few weeks on the job to be in charge of NBC News. Ann Noonan wrote that the BBG must move forward with the selection of a new CEO and stressed the need for management reforms at the Voice of America (VOA). In her article, Ann Noonan also stressed the importance of radio and satellite television broadcasts to China which blocks Radio Free Asia (RFA), VOA and other Western news websites. She also described how CUSIB worked successfully with journalists, media freedom advocates and Congress to prevent BBG's agency officials from ending direct VOA radio and satellite broadcasts to China. ANN NOONAN: "While many people in China do, in fact, own cell phones and can go online, there are a good majority of poor people, especially in rural areas, who cannot afford cell phones and many people have no access to the Internet. They deserve the same access to information as any other person who deserves basic human rights. They can’t get them in China and in many other countries. That’s where the BBG steps in and that’s the reason U.S. taxpayers are willing to pay for radio and television broadcasts, as well as the Internet and other new media if they are available and are not censored."

They included Office of Cuba Broadcasting (OCB) Radio and TV Marti illegally RIFed journalists who have not yet been rehired and management problems within the Voice of America (VOA). Link to Video In her presentation to the BBG board, Noonan expressed concern about the plight of the employees of the Office of Cuba Broadcasting who were illegally fired 5 years ago. Noonan also spoke about "the very disturbing presentation" Voice of America Director David Ensor "made to ridicule the efforts of former BBG Governor Ambassador Victor Ashe, former BBG employees (former senior Voice of America English correspondents), as well as a Jehovah's Witnesses publication." CUSIB EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ANN NOONAN "It is unconscionable for any federal employee to demonstrate religious intolerance in a punchline and expect his underlings to enjoy the jab. A holiday party is no excuse. There are tasteful ways of making fun - usually at oneself if you are a VOA Director - and this was NOT one of those times. It's extraordinary for the Director of a U.S. taxpayer-funded broadcaster to mock an independent U.S. media outlet and independent U.S. journalists. It's so ugly for anyone who stands for freedom to mock American public input and public opinion." Noonan expressed appreciation for "the efforts of Radio Free Asia Cantonese Service for their exclusive interview about Chen Qi Tang. Noonan vowed to "continue to advocate for more funding for surrogate broadcasting." Full text of Ann Noonan's statement:
