This week, RFE/RL's Radio Azadi marks 10 years of bringing news and information to the people of Afghanistan. During a special day of programming, the station -- which reaches over 60% of Afghans weekly -- asked listeners to call or write to share what Radio Azadi programming means to them.
The reaction from listeners was overwhelming as Radio Azadi received thousands of messages from people of all walks of life and from all corners of the country.
"It was humbling to see such an outpouring of affection both for the radio as a whole and for individual presenters," said Radio Azadi Director Hashem Mohmand. "It was very emotional day for many of us. We are truly honored to do what we do."
Radio Azadi is the second incarnation of RFE/RL broadcasting to Afghanistan in the Dari and Pashto languages. "Radio Free Afghanistan" served audiences throughout the country from 1985 to 1993, during the Soviet war in Afghanistan.
