National News in Cuba: 8 Ways to Keep Up With Cuba From US

By    |   Wednesday, 06 Jan 2016 04:45 PM

For years, Cuba has been off limits for nearly everything from travel to cigars. It was little more than a mysterious island, home to the Castro brothers, which stood for practically everything the U.S. was against. But thanks to the efforts of President Obama, hostile relations between the U.S. and the small country are subsiding and some travel bans have been lifted. However, national news from the island is still often difficult to come by and often published by the Communist Party, meaning most must look to outside news to inform and educate.

Here are eight ways to keep up with national news in Cuba from the U.S.

1. Radio and TV Martí
Since the station’s first broadcast in 1985 Radio Martí has been providing Spanish speakers in both Cuba and U.S. with news ranging from politics to the economy and sports to current events. Listeners can find the station on the radio, online, or via apps.
