The World Radio Day is being celebrated today (Feb 13) with the theme of Dialogue, Tolerance and Peace. The basic purpose of celebrating this day is to promote the radio as a means of communication in times of need and emergency. Radios are still the most readily available medium that can disseminate information to reach the widest and most diverse audiences in the shortest amount of time.
In his message On the World Radio Day, the United Nations Secretary General António Guterres said “On this World Radio Day, let us recognize the power of radio to promote dialogue, tolerance and peace.” In this connection, News & Current Affairs Channel of Radio Pakistan has organized a two hour long live show from five minutes past ten in the morning to twelve noon. Tributes will be paid to the legends of radio who contributed in the glory of Radio Pakistan.
Hosted by UNESCO, it was first celebrated in 2012, following its declaration by the UNESCO General Conference.
