The purpose of this study was to examine the role of South Florida Haitian migrant radio with regard to its listeners' relations across national borders. The content of several commercials and announcements was analyzed. Different actors--especially broadcasters and Haiti's state and government officials--were found to use the medium to carry out at least one of the following instrumental processes: linking listeners across borders, deterritorialized nation-state building, transnational migrants' politics in the "host" country, and deterritorialization of the "local." The findings demonstrated that South Florida Haitian migrant radio operates in transnational social fields. It is recommended that researchers take a transnational approach to migrant media.
