In Haiti, 'video has not killed the radio star'

Paolo Woods recently photographed radio stations and their listeners around his home in Les Cayes, Haiti. Here he explains why so many Haitians use radio as their main source of news and entertainment: More than 50 percent of Haitians are illiterate, and only 25 percent have regular access to electricity. That means most Haitians do not read the country's only daily newspaper, regularly watch television, or while away the hours surfing the Internet. But they can listen to the radio. And Haitians do listen, all the time.
