VOICE OF AMERICA BROADCASTING LIVE FROM CLEVELAND

 CLEVELAND, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Voice of America (VOA) broadcasters from the Estonian, Hungarian, Polish, Slovak and Romanian language services based in Washington are broadcasting live coverage from Cleveland until Friday, Aug. 6. The group is focusing on Cleveland as a flourishing urban center, where many ethnic groups add to the mosaic and vitality of an American city.
 VOA's mobile broadcast van, Voyager II, is parked at Public Square for on-the-spot coverage featuring interviews with these ethnic groups in their respective languages. This unique coverage of the city's melting pot will provide colorful insight into the diverse host of European traditions, history and cultures in Cleveland.
 The interviews and broadcasts will focus on how these groups live, work and interact in Cleveland and how they have adjusted to life in the United States. VOA will also be talking to city officials about issues of importance to an ethnically integrated city, such as foreign tourism, the absorption of immigrants and urban renewal.
 The Voice of America is the international broadcasting service of the U.S. Information Agency, broadcasting over 1,100 hours of programming in more than 40 languages to a weekly audience estimated in the tens of millions.
