Echo of Moscow (Russian: Э́хо Москвы́, Ekho Moskvy) is a Russian radio station based in Moscow, broadcasting in many Russian cities, in some of the former-Soviet republics (through partnerships with local radio stations), and via the Internet, which some observers describe as "the last bastion of free media in Russia". Most of the content consists of news and talk shows focusing on social and political issues and the station tries to represent different points of view. The current senior editor is Alexey Venediktov. Among radio hosts of the station are Victor Shenderovich, Yulia Latynina, Yevgenia Albats, Vladimir Kara-Murza, Vladimir Ryzhkov, Maria Gaidar, Yevgeny Yasin and Sophie Shevardnadze.
In addition to broadcasting Echo of Moscow is running a website that publishes analytical and factual materials in a variety of fields including international and domestic political affairs, social developments and cultural trends. The articles are authored by members of the so called Echo of Moscow Club, an honorary group of political analysts, academic researchers, columnists and public figures. Among the site's authors are Boris Akunin, Dmitrii Bykov, Matvey Ganapolsky, Eduard Limonov, Alexey Navalny, Valeriya Novodvorskaya, Victor Shenderovich, and a number of other experts, who have sustained national and international acclaim in their areas of expertise. The Echo of Moscow site is an authoritative source of information, and its publications are regularly cited, relied on and reproduced by major Russian internet publications and other media sources.
