"I want to thank Thunderbird from the bottom of my heart. I am very impressed with their management style and appreciate it."
Afghan Media Management Program Participant
Afghan radio stations operate in a new era of broadcast freedom following the entry of coalition forces in the country. To learn how to adjust to the new environment, a group of nine radio owners and directors came to the United States in September 2011. The group spent one week as guests of the American Councils for International Education in Washington, D.C., where they toured NPR, America Abroad Media and other radio outlets. They then came to Thunderbird’s campus in Glendale, Arizona, for one week of business and media training in partnership with Arizona State University. The Afghan participants ended their U.S. tour in New York, where they visited Columbia School of Journalism, Freedom House and the Committee to Protect Journalists.
