Radio Iranshahr recently launched with the initial collaboration of Seattle, Maryland, Orange County, Washington D.C. and Virginia. One of their early coverage is on University of Washington inaugural Nowruz celebration that was sponsored by NELC Iranian and Persian Studies Program and organized by a wonderful committee of community members under the leadership of Ali Afrassiabi and Roy Ghazimorad, both of whom are members of NELC PISP Advisory Board.
NELC chair Selim S. Kuru who was interviewed for this coverage recognized the support from Seattle community for this important inaugural event that is attended by around 700 people and featured a rich program to celebrate the coming of Spring. NELC is thankful for their wonderful coverage to Raido Iranshahr. NELC will be reporting on the successful UW Nowruz Celebration very soon on this web-site.
