[creative-radio] Repairing Haitian Radio


Repairing Haitian Radio

Internews sends team of specialists, technicians to restore local
By Curtis Brainard

With radio and television news outlets crippled by the 7.0-magnitude
earthquake that struck Haiti last week, Internews, an international media
development organization, announced Wednesday that it was sending a team
to the impoverished island nation to help get broadcasters back up and
running. The team began to arrive on Friday, and over the weekend I sent a
list of questions to Jeanne Bourgault, Chief Operating Officer of
Internews, asking about the group's progress. Communications with the team
have been more sporadic than anticipated, but Bourgault offered her
assessment of the situation as of Sunday evening.
