Happy # 24 to TV Marti

On this day in 1990, TV Marti was born:

“The U.S. government begins the operation of TV Marti, which broadcast television programs into communist Cuba. “

TV Marti’s mission is to bring news to the Cuban people.   It was born a few years after Radio Marti.  We congratulate all of our Cuban friends in the US for making the broadcasts possible.

I don’t know if TV Marti reaches as many Cubans in the island as Radio Marti does.   My guess is that more Cubans have access to a radio than TV, specially given the blackouts.   At least, that’s what I’ve heard from Cubans who’ve left the island recently!

Nevertheless, happy # 24 to TV Marti!
