'Willis Conover: Broadcasting
By Kim Andrew Elliott
Jazz to the World',
by Terence M. Ripmaster
Paperback: 240 pages
Publisher: iUniverse, Inc. (March 1, 2007)
, International Broadcasting Bureau Research Analyst
If you go to my website about international broadcasting (kimandrewelliott.com) and search on “jazz,” you’ll see several entries about musicians who were inspired by Willis Conover’s jazz broadcasts on the Voice of America. They listened in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, as expected, but also in India, Cuba, Sweden – all over the world, actually.
My own first memories of Willis Conover were as a teenaged shortwave listener in Indiana. When I began working at VOA in 1985, I considered it a perk to encounter the famous international broadcaster in the corridors. Willis always had a smile and a hello for me. I don’t think he ever knew my name.

Robert Lee Vann
(1879-1940) rose from the cotton field to become founder-editor-publisher of the Pittsburgh Courier, which by the early 1930s counted 250,000 readers across the country, the largest circulation of any black-owned newspaper in history, and one of the few newspapers of any kind to have a national circulation.
Vann managed to acquire a first-rate education at Virginia Union University and Western University in Pennsylvania,and was licensed as a lawyer in that state in 1909.
