European Managing Editor
Mr Schoech launched Clandestine
Radio Watch (CRW) in 1998 to centralize timely and current
information related to opposition and subversive media.
His eye for detail and content as well as editorial
consistency quickly placed the publication as a "must
read" for broadcasters, journalists, intelligence
professionals and serious radio monitors. Within months
of its first issue, CRW was sourced within an article
filed by the British Broadcasting Corporation. The U.S.
Library of Congress further distinguished the publication
by including it in the library's digital archives during
Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.
Mr Schoech's expertise in clandestine
broadcasting is more personal than any other specialist
of the subject in the world. He grew
up in East Germany, which was at the heart of a major
propaganda and clandestine radio war between the two
superpowers during the Cold War. His experience of living
without a free press and political opposition lends
him tremendous insight and credibility into conflicts
and media disputes around the world.
A strong proponent of free speech,
Mr Schoech is also an influential force within the "free
radio" movement in Europe. He runs the Swedish
Radio Service (SRS) office in Germany and was co-editor
for its widely-read news publication, SRSNews.
Mr Schoech is a doctoral candidate
in chemistry at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg
in Merseburg, Germany, where he is developing new biodegradable
bone cement for medical purposes. He lives in Eisenach,
Germany, with his family.
