The CIA "owned approximately 158 proprietaries. These agencies employed approximately REDACTED persons. Ninety-two percent of the employees were accounted for by three proprietary complexes as follows: JBGREED, TPTONIC, QRACTIVE. TPTONIC and QRACTIVE (Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty) were turned over to the Department of State and are now being managed by the Board of International Broadcasters." (At page 90) "TPTONIC, TPTONIC/FJINDULGE/, TPTONIC, ZRNACARAT...(these) three proprietary entities were part of a substantial radio broadcasting activity which was turned over to the Department of State for support and subsequently placed under the control of the Board of International Broadcasters for continued operation with Congressional support." 1976 Church Committee report.

RFE was founded in 1950 and initially broadcast to Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, and Romania...Initially, both RFE and RL were funded principally by the U.S. Congress through the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), but RFE also received supplemental private donations. In 1971, all CIA involvement ended, and thereafter RFE and RL were funded by Congressional appropriation through the Board for International Broadcasting (BIB) and after 1995 the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG).
