Citing escalating conflict on the Korean Peninsula, Radio Free Asia has opted to double its Korean-language broadcasting in North Korea from two hours to four. "(North Korean listeners) have demonstrated extraordinary ingenuity to secretly hear our broadcasts, and we are pleased that we can now provide them with more programs to help satisfy their hunger for news from outside their closed society," stated RFA President Richard Richter.
The Broadcasting Board of Governors approved the measure in response to rising tensions related to Pyongyang's decision to openly resume its nuclear program. The broadcasts are also available at www.rfa.org.
