What is that coming over the horizon? It’s the annual UNESCO World Radio Day on Saturday February 13th. This year’s theme is New World, New Radio: Evolution, Innovation and Connection, with UNESCO calling on radio stations to celebrate both this event’s 10th anniversary and over 110 years of radio.
Radio has been part of our media landscape for over a century and continues to evolve, according to events, socio-economic, political, and legislative contexts.
There are many different ways to listen to the radio, anytime and in any place, making radio the number one media for mobility, thanks to its adaptation to new technologies.
Broadcasters and other organisations that putting on events or programmes for World Radio Day (#WRD21) are encouraged to sign up at the UNESCO World Radio website.
