Radio Free Europe/Radio_Liberty is a US government sponsored broadcaster.

Origins

Radio Free Europe was created and grew in its early years through the efforts of the National Committee for a Free Europe (NCFE), an organization that was formed in New York City in 1949. Funding was provided by a range of donors from big business, including Wall St. directors of big business, finance and oil companies.[1]

Staff

Various CIA spooks started at Radio Free Europe, including Paul Henze (an original management team member, from 1952-1958) and Le Cercle attendee, Fritz Ermarth.

Craig Oliphant worked at Radio Free Europe/Radio_Liberty in Munich in the 1980s.[2]
