Radioens dag

(13 februar, 2015 - 04:00)

Unesco har erklært at 13. februar skal være Radioens dag, World Radio Day. Det skjedde på den 36. generalkonferansen i Unesco, etter et forslag fra Spania.

Årsaken til at det ble akkurat 13. februar er FN`s radiotjeneste ble etablert på denne dagen i 1946.

I en pressemelding fra Unesco står det: "- The new World Day should raise awareness about the importance of radio, facilitate access to information through radio and enhance networking among broadcasters. "Videre heter det:

"- 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. Furthermore, radio has a strong and specific role in emergency communication and disaster relief.

There is also a changing face to radio services which, in the present times of media convergence, are taking up new technological forms, such as broadband, mobiles and tablets. However, it is said that up to a billion people still do not have access to radio today. "
