On the Line

Smart talk about issues and ideas that matter.

On the Line is a lively forum, hosted by Ayesha Tanzeem, where newsmakers, policy experts, diplomats, activists, academics and journalists discuss world events. It focuses on the critical issues shaping the future, and gives those issues the vigorous, serious debate they deserve. The program broadcasts worldwide on VOA Television, and is also heard on VOA radio. Condensed versions of the program can be heard in translation in over 40 languages via VOA radio's language services.
