Wither VOA?

In what strikes me as the worst PD move since USIA was folded up and America international broadcasting was placed under the aegis of the BBG, it appears that VOA is moving away from radio broadcasts to a push for internet broadcasting and social media outreach.  Not to be a PD luddite, but the vast majority of the world still connects via radio not internet.  VOA is being a tech dilettante and pushing for PD 2.0 when the world still requires PD 1.0.
