The Office of Cuba Broadcasting (OCB) oversees Radio and Television Martí at its headquarters in Miami, Florida. The Martís are a multimedia hub of news, information and analysis that provide the people of Cuba with interactive programs seven days a week through satellite television and shortwave and AM radio, as well as through flash drives, emails, DVDs, and SMS text. Combined with the online platform, martinoticias.com, the Martís are a one-of-a-kind service that brings unbiased, objective information to all Cubans.
In an effort to maximize resources, increase collaboration and focus on key issues and audiences, the networks of the BBG have produced another full-scale collaborative project: The Dragon’s Reach; Tracking China’s Economic Power Play.
OCB's morning lineup now includes “Levántate Cuba” (“Wake Up, Cuba”), a news magazine show, providing Cubans with engaging and uncensored information on current events in Cuba, the U.S. and around the world, with segments dedicated to sports, health, culture, entertainment, and technology.
Audiences around the world, including in some of the most media-repressed countries, were able to watch President Trump’s first State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday evening, thanks to the networks of the BBG. The extensive coverage, which included the Democrat response by Representative Joe Kennedy, was distributed to more than 100 countries.
Venezuelan opposition leader Antonio José Ledezma, who had been under house arrest since 2015 and last month managed to escape across the border to Colombia, visited the Office of Cuba Broadcasting for a worldwide exclusive interview with Alejandro Marcano Santelli, host of TV Martí’s “Venezuela en Crisis.”
Cuban digital entrepreneurs and innovators, along with other local and international leaders, will meet in Miami on November 7–8, for the second annual Cuba Internet Freedom (CIF).
