Celebrate the critical role of the Voice of America plays in the free flow of factual news and information worldwide.
The Bethany Relay Station was constructed by the Crosley Broadcasting Company during World War II for the Office of War Information. When operational (1944 - 1994) it housed six superpower shortwave broadcast transmitters designed to counteract the propaganda effort from Hitler's superior radio network. The square mile of land held 24 highly directional antennas pointed toward Europe, Africa and Latin America. The facility is undergoing major restoration and modifications required to establish a first class museum and educational institution.
