World Radio Day: A Century Informing, Entertaining And Educating

World Radio Day is celebrated annually on February 13, honouring the enduring influence of radio as a medium that has informed, entertained, and educated audiences worldwide for over a century.

Radio is a form of mass media and communication that usually transmits music, news, and other programmes from a single broadcast station. Since its origin, radio has been a primary medium of communication.

From World War I to the present day, it has connected people from different remote regions, including rural and tribal areas where connectivity has been a big challenge. It has helped create awareness, educate, and connect the masses through a single device.

This year’s theme, “Radio: A Century of Informing, Entertaining, and Educating,” highlights the remarkable achievement of radio as a communication and information channel for over a century, even in the face of the rise of social media. Radio has been a steadfast companion in our lives, weaving stories, music, and news into the tapestry of our shared experiences.

Today, let’s celebrate the diverse voices that resonate through the airwaves. From local community stations to international broadcasts, radio amplifies stories that might otherwise go unnoticed, empowering marginalized voices and promoting social inclusion.

Happy World Radio Day to all our listeners!
