Description:
*Introduction* This collection consists of 30 hours of broadcast news recordings from the following sources: Voice of America (VOA), China Central TV (CCTV) and KAZN-AM, a commercial radio station based in Los Angeles, CA. Of these three sources, the first two comprise the bulk of the collection and are represented in roughly equal amounts. Only a relatively small sample of KAZN-AM recordings is included, owing to the relatively high proportion of unusable material in that source (e.g., commercials, local traffic reports). Corresponding transcripts are released as 1997 Mandarin Broadcast News Transcripts (HUB4-NE) LDC98T24. *Data* All recordings were made using a single channel and 16-KHz sample frequency. Most files contain 30 minutes of recordings. There are some larger files consisting of 60 minutes and 120 minutes of programming. *Updates* There are no updates at this time. *Pricing* The Reduced Licensing Fee for this corpus is US$400.
