Radio Sawa is an Arabic language radio station, funded by the United States government. Its goal is to provide what it claims is balanced news and information to youth in Arabic-speaking countries, as local news in many Middle Eastern countries is considered by the U.S. government as biased.

The station's playlist includes popular Arabic, English and Spanish songs. It also broadcasts news throughout the day.

Radio Sawa's first broadcast was on March 23, 2002. Its broadcasts are recorded in Washington, DC and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Radio Sara is controlled by the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), an agency of the U.S. government.
