Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) - On October 1, 1999, the BBG became the independent federal agency responsible for all U.S. government and government sponsored, non military, international broadcasting. This was the result of the 1998 Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act (Public Law 105-277), the single most important legislation affecting U.S. international broadcasting since the early 1950s. While the "Broadcasting Board of Governors" is the legal name given to the federal entity encompassing all U.S. international broadcasting services, the day-to-day broadcasting activities are carried out by individual BBG international broadcasters with the assistance of the International Broadcasting Bureau (IBB). Broadcast elements include:
