The Friday Five – World Radio Day 2-13-2021
Follow and join the conversation with #WorldRadioDay.
According to UNESCO (@UNESCO), “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. ” HealthcareNow Radio shares the latest news about our station and its shows, and how you too can be part of the World Radio Day Celebration on February 13, 2021.

Celebrations in 2021
On the occasion of World Radio Day 2021 (WRD 2021), UNESCO calls on radio stations to celebrate this event’s 10th anniversary and the more than 110 years of radio. This year’s theme is :New World, New Radio.” This edition of WRD is divided into three main sub-themes:
- EVOLUTION The world changes, radio evolves.
This sub-theme refers to the resilience of the radio, to its sustainability ;
- INNOVATION The world changes, radio adapts and innovate.
Radio has had to adapt to new technologies to remain the go-to medium of mobility, accessible everywhere and to everyone;
- CONNECTION The world changes, radio connects.
This sub-theme highlights radio’s services to our society—natural disasters, socio-economic crises, epidemics, etc.
