Online PR News – 04-January-2011 – – NEW YORK, January 4, 2011 -- Paltalk, the leading real-time, video-based community that's been downloaded more than 70 million times, today announced the launch of Radio Bolsa (www.radiobolsa.com), providing local and international news, including news from their homeland, Vietnam, to millions of listeners with access to the internet worldwide. Leveraging Paltalk technology, Radio Bolsa is bridging the gap between Vietnamese communities overseas through a unique program line-up contributed by talented Vietnamese artists, writers, journalists, and professionals as well as promoting local, and national goods and services of their program sponsors.
"Paltalk is keeping the world in touch through face-to-face communication and localized programming like Radio Bolsa," said Jason Katz, CEO, Paltalk. "Radio Bolsa is a perfect example of how local organizations can bring their international content and news from around the world direct to millions of homes in an affordable, engaging format. We welcome them to the Paltalk family of programs and hope that everyone in the Vietnamese community will sign on and enjoy the live streaming programs that Radio Bolsa offers."
Radio Bolsa programs have a unique focus on a wide range of topics, including world news, U.S. news, local news, music from traditional to modern sources, interviews with community leaders, and coverage of special events, especially cultural festivities. Each program is designed to acculturate newly immigrated Vietnamese to America and to help those Vietnamese already established in America keep in touch with their heritage.
"Vietnamese are very family-oriented and have very strong ties to our home country," said Thien Nguyen, President, Radio Bolsa. "We are very proud of our program line-up and we are ecstatic to be on the Paltalk platform. Through Paltalk, we can reach millions of Vietnamese listeners worldwide. Furthermore, Paltalk also provides our listeners with many cool basic audio and video features free of charge. Paltalk has proven to be a great means of delivery and a supporter of many in-language radio programs and Radio Bolsa looks forward to growing our listenership with Paltalk."
Vietnamese is the fastest growing Asian population in the U.S., according to the US 2010 Census. Out of 1.5 million Vietnamese in the U.S., approximately 250,000 people reside in Southern California where Radio Bolsa broadcasts its daily radio program. Vietnamese is the preferred spoken language in almost all Vietnamese households; hence, they subscribe to Vietnamese daily newspapers and tune-in to daily live broadcasts from Radio Bolsa for news, information, and entertainment.
