Civic- Minded Radio

  I listened to Voice of America’s Africa News Tonight, a news magazine show in English addressing world news, but with special emphasis on educating Americans about Africa. Most stories are covered by way of in depth interviews with correspondents on the ground in the areas they’re reporting on.
