Radio Martí celebrates 30 years and ponders their future

On May 20 of 2015, Radio Martí marked their 30th anniversary, broadcasting news and information to the island nation of Cuba. Radio Martí shared a historic timeline, photos and articles on and aired special programming.

The Cuban government tries to jam Martí broadcast; while Radio Martí says it uses a combination of high-and low tech approaches to reach the Cuban citizens, including satellite, shortwave and AM radio. Other sources include online, flash drives, DVDs and mobile apps. The thaw in U.S.-Cuban relations has raised questions about Radio Martí's role in the future.
