    through?

    Dear teachers,
    How shall I say?

    The time of the departure was announced through the loudspeaker a few minutes ago.

    Is 'through' correct?

    Re: through?

    Just for your reference, Natasha, both the prepositions on and over are correct here; however, in my own experience I've probably heard over a bit more frequently. Through is rather odd here, and would seldom be used.
