World Radio Day

Poster: Ron Mader, World Radio Day

February 13 is World Radio Day which raises awareness about the importance of radio and strengthens the networking among broadcasters. Now in its sixth year, the celebration is bigger than ever.

Background

Hosted by UNESCO, World Radio Day celebrates how radio positively impacts millions of lives everyday.

UNESCO: “Radio is still the most dynamic, reactive and engaging medium there is, adapting to 21st century changes and offering new ways to interact and participate. Where social media and audience fragmentation can put us in media bubbles of like-minded people, radio is uniquely positioned to bring communities together and foster positive dialogue for change. By listening to its audiences and responding to their needs, radio provides the diversity of views and voices needed to address the challenges we all face. Radio informs us and transforms us, through entertainment, information and audience participation.  Having a radio means you are never alone – you always have a friend in radio. ”
