NEW YORK, Oct 20, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Several leading names in U.S. talk radio are helping hone the skills of women working in Iraq's emerging radio industry.

he Institute for War & Peace Reporting said several female Iraqi radio hosts arrived in the United States Thursday and will spend the next several weeks training in New York, Washington and Boston.

Air America's Laura Flanders, Monica Crowley of WABC and MSNBC and WOR's Joan Hamburg are among several U.S. professionals sharing their expertise as well as providing in-studio training to the Iraqi guests, the institute said in a news release.

IWPR, an international organization supported by major western development agencies and private foundations, has been training print journalists in Iraq since 2003. The non-profit agency only recently started working with Iraq's radio personalities and news people as well.
