US Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack is the first presidential appointee to serve in a new position created by Congress to modernize US-funded broadcasting efforts worldwide. He did not appear Thursday at Congressional hearing where lawmakers from both parties said that they feared the Voice of America and other U.S.-funded broadcasters were at risk of losing credibility with foreign audiences because of his actions. VOA’s Congressional Correspondent Katherine Gypson reports.
