World Radio Day!

February 13, 2023 All day

February 13th is World Radio Day!

World Radio Day is an annual event that is celebrated on February 13th. The day was first proclaimed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2011, with the aim of highlighting the important role that radio plays in promoting freedom of expression and access to information.

The theme for World Radio Day changes every year, and it is typically used as an opportunity to raise awareness about various issues related to radio broadcasting. For example, in 2021, the theme was “New World, New Radio,” which focused on the ways in which radio has adapted to the changing media landscape, particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Radio has been an important tool for communication and information dissemination for over a century, and it remains a crucial medium in many parts of the world, particularly in areas where other forms of media are not as accessible. World Radio Day provides an opportunity to recognize the important role that radio plays in promoting access to information, supporting cultural diversity and expression, and contributing to social and economic development.

Happy World Radio Day!
