Monday, February 13th is the First Annual World Radio Day. World Radio Day “seeks [to] raise awareness about the importance of radio, facilitate access to information through radio and enhance networking among broadcasters. Radio has to be recognized as a low cost medium, specifically suited to reach remote communities and vulnerable people: the illiterate, the disabled, women, youth and the poor, while offering a platform to intervene in the public debate, irrespective of people’s educational level.”
Be sure to tune in to CiTR on February 13 for special programming!
Check the official World Radio Day site for more information, including how the day came to be.
