Dear Friends,
Our 2007 VOA calendar displays some of the picturesque rivers, coastlines, and other waterways that can be found in the United States. We hope you enjoy these scenic pictures during the coming year, our 65th anniversary in broadcasting.
The past year has brought many exciting developments to the Voice of America, particularly in television and on the Internet. We have added a number of new programs, and we have adopted some new technologies to serve you on your computers, mobile phones, and personal digital devices.
One of our biggest expansions came in our broadcasts to Iran; our Persian Service now airs four hours of television every night to large audiences in Iran. The newest programs, both one-hour daily, are News Talk and Late Edition. We expanded our popular News &Views show to one-hour daily and increased our long-running feature program Roundtable with You from a weekly broadcast to a daily one-hour show. Every one of these programs is also simulcast on radio. A recent survey showed that more than one in four adult Iranians either watches or listens to VOA programs at least once a week, so we are excited about the expansion of our offerings to such an appreciative audience.
Another big change came in our broadcasts to Afghanistan. In October, we launched the hour-long TV Ashna (Friend), which is divided into two news programs for Afghanistan’s two national languages-the first half hour is in Dari and the second in Pashto. Our Afghan audience watches TV Ashna in the afternoon on Radio-TV Afghanistan, a long-time affiliate broadcaster.
Other VOA television and radio programs are highlighted in the pages of this new calendar.
For those of you who are enjoying some of the new digital technologies, we launched VOA Mobile, an alI—text version of our top news stories for use on web-enabled handheld devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. Wherever you go, you can now have access to text versions of VOA’s top news stories in a user-friendly format. The content is updated almost hourly, seven days a week. Our first content was in English, but VOA Mobile is now available in Albanian, Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Persian, Serbian, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese, with more languages to come.
Finally, we introduced a new treat for those of you who plan a visit to Washington, D.C. Our new VOA Studio Tour, which is available Monday through Friday, offers visitors an entertaining and informative audio tour of VOA's history, beginning with our start in 1942 and includes a live, behind-the-scenes look at our television and radio broadcasters in action. We hope to see you on the tour. We’ve included the reservation number on the back of this calendar.
The coming year is sure to bring more changes and challenges for all of us. But whatever it brings, we pledge to keep you informed with the highest quality news and information. On behalf of all of us at VOA, thank you for your loyal support of our broadcasting, and best of luck in the future.
From Your Friends at VOA

VOA Charter
The VOA Charter
To protect the integrity of VOA programming and define the organizations mission, the VOA Charter was drafted in 1960 and signed into law on July 12, 1976, by President Gerald Ford. It reads:

The long―range interests of the United States are served by communicating directly with the peoples ofthe world by radio. To be effective, the Voice of America must win the attention and respect of listeners. These principles will therefore govern Voice of America (VOA) broadcasts.

1. VOA will serve as a consistently reliable and authoritative source of news. VOA news will be accurate, objective, and comprehensive.
2. VOA will represent America, not any single segment of American society, and will therefore present a balanced and comprehensive projection of significant American thought and institutions.
3. VOA will present the policies ofthe United States clearly and effectively; and will also present responsible discussions and opinion on these policies.
