Haitians Find Help Through the Airwaves

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Radio has always been an important part of Haitian society. And since the earthquake, it has played an even more critical role, serving as the primary mode of transmitting information about aid.

We talk with Michael Deibert, a freelance journalist who recently returned from Haiti and spent time with local radio hosts there. We also speak to Emilio San Pedro, an editor for Connexion Haiti, a new lifeline BBC program broadcast on six stations throughout Haiti.

Read Michael Deibert's article in Slate, "Haiti After The Earthquake."
