The Voice of America (VOA) debuted its first daily video webcast, the Daily Download, this week, which contains U.S. and international news, feature material and other video clips.
“Daily Download is another news service for our audience, it has a fresh approach, and fast-paced format to appeal to our overseas online audience,” said VOA Director Dan Austin in a prepared statement. “The webcast is free and available through the internet whenever people want to hear a concise, informative and entertaining version of the day’s news,” Austin added.
The 3 1/2 minute webcast is produced by VOA’s Worldwide English Division and can be streamed live or downloaded to media devices such as iPods. Daily Download will be offered for mobile phone access in the near future.
