ARMENIAN INDEPENTENT BROADCASTINGOF BOSTON The Armenian Independent Broadcasting of Boston was founded by the late Jerair Gharibian in October of 1980. For 11 years the relentless efforts of Gharibian made it possible for the program to air on WUNR 1600 A.M. every Saturday from 2:30 to 4:00P.M. reaching the Greater Boston area's nearly 50,000 Armenian listeners. The program broadcast in two languages covered national and cultural news and events both in the Diaspora and in Armenia. The program profiled various Diaspora Armenian communities as well as interviews with Armenia's intellectual, artistic and political groups in addition to national and folk musical selections. Gharibian's devotion to his homeland was the inspiration for the weekly reportage and updates on the political and social events taking place in Armenia. The weekly bilingual broadcast kept the Armenian listeners informed of all vital Armenian news and events both in Armenia and in the Diaspora. After the untimely death of Jerair Gharibian (November 18, 1991), his wife Yevgine Gharibian, who had along with her husband, volunteered her services in the production of the radio hour from the very first day, took over the weekly programming and continued to this day uninterrupted. For the last sixteen years she has continues the weekly bilingual broadcast instilling her husbands spirit and commitment to the continuation of the Armenian Independent Broadcasting of Boston.
