World Radio Day message from UN Secretary General

On the occasion of the eighth World Radio Day on February 13 – an annual celebration of radio as a medium hosted by UNESCO – UN Secretary General António Guterres shared this message.

“Even in today’s world of digital communications, radio reaches more people than any other media platform.

It conveys vital information and raises awareness on important issues.

And it is a personal, interactive platform where people can air their views, concerns, and grievances. Radio can create a community.

For the United Nations, especially our peacekeeping operations, radio is a vital way of informing, reuniting and empowering people affected by war.

On this World Radio Day, let us recognize the power of radio to promote dialogue, tolerance and peace.”
