Voice of Vietnam (VOV5)
The Voice of Vietnam (also Radio the Voice of Vietnam, Vietnamese: Đài Tiếng nói Việt Nam) is the Socialist Republic of Vietnam's national radio broadcaster. The Voice of Vietnam is abbreviated in Vietnamese to “Đài TNVN” and has the English name “Voice of Vietnam”, or VOV for short.
The first Vietnamese-language radio transmission was made on September 2, 1945, when Ho Chi Minh read out the Declaration of Independence. Its first program was aired at 11.30 AM on September 7th 1945 with the signature phrase: “This is the Voice of Vietnam, broadcasting from Hanoi, capital of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam”. At 11.30 AM on 2nd July 1976, this phrase was changed to: “This is the Voice of Vietnam, broadcasting from Hanoi, capital of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam”.
Prior to 1945, the Vietnamese were banned from owning radio receivers, and broadcasting was under control of the French colonial government, which established the first radio station in Vietnam, Radio Saigon, in the late 1920s.
During the Vietnam War, Radio Hanoi operated as a propaganda tool of North Vietnam. In August 1968, Voice of Vietnam commenced shortwave broadcasts for Vietnamese living abroad. South Vietnam set up its own network in Saigon in 1955.
Following Reunification, all of the radio stations were combined into the Voice of Vietnam, which became the national radio station in 1978.
Today, VOV strives to offer diverse, high-quality programming and in every aspect of mass media. It broadcasts on many channels, repeated on Medium wave (MW) AM, FM and shortwave (SW) AM bands throughout Vietnam and the rest of the world:
