白宫确认总统每周广播讲话暂停 White House Confirms Weekly Presidential Radio Address on Hiatus

白宫确认,实行了几十年的总统每周广播讲话无限期暂停。

白宫新闻秘书桑德斯在星期一的新闻简报会上回答mr007问题时说:“我们收到了一些建议和很多反馈,都说每周讲话的使用没有发挥最大的潜力。我们在研究不同的渠道,希望加以改进,一边能够有更大的效果,提供更多的信息。”

白宫上一次公布川普总统的每周讲话录音是10月13号。川普担任总统头9个月每周都发布广播讲话的录音。

总统每周讲话始于1933年美国深陷经济衰退时期罗斯福总统的“炉边谈话”。罗斯福在担任纽约州长时就开始利用收音机广播与公众沟通。当时无线电广播是一场技术上的革命。

里根总统1982年再次开启了这个传统。曾经做过电台资深广播员和演员的里根开始每星期六从白宫发表广播讲话。

mr007联系了美国各地若干新闻广播电台,既有大电台也有小电台,它们都不再播放总统的星期六讲话。

The White House confirms the weekly presidential radio address – a fixture for decades – is on indefinite hiatus.

“We received quite a few comments and a lot of feedback that the weekly address wasn't being used to its full potential,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in response to a VOA question during Monday's daily briefing. “We're looking at different ways that we can revamp that and make it where it's more beneficial and gets more information out.”

The last time the White House released a weekly radio recording made by President Donald Trump was on October 13. During the first nine months of his administration he had regularly taped the messages.

Regular presidential radio addresses began with the “fireside chats” of President Franklin Roosevelt during the depth of economic depression in 1933.

Roosevelt had begun using radio to reach the public as governor of New York State at a time when radio broadcasting was a technological revolution.

The tradition was revived by President Ronald Reagan in 1982, a veteran radio announcer and actor, who started the Saturday audio-only addresses from the White House.
