World Radio Day

UNESCO’s General Conference, at its 36th session, proclaimed World Radio Day on 13 February. Radio is the mass media reaching the widest audience in the world and is recognized as a powerful communication tool and a low cost medium.

Radio is specifically suited to reach remote communities and vulnerable people disseminating information which no other medium could afford. Radio often is the most reliable form of communication during emergencies and disaster relief.

The 2022 Theme is Radio and Trust.

According to the World Radio Day website,

Radio is a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for democratic discourse. At the global level, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. This unique ability to reach out the widest audience means radio can shape a society’s experience of diversity, stand as an arena for all voices to speak out, be represented and heard. Radio stations should serve diverse communities, offering a wide variety of programs, viewpoints and content, and reflect the diversity of audiences in their organizations and operations.

Radio continues to be one of the most trusted and used media in the world, according to different international reports. The theme of the 2022 edition of World Radio Day is thus devoted to “Radio and Trust”.
