Follow and join the conversation with #WorldRadioDay.
According to UNESCO (@UNESCO), “On World Radio Day 2020 (WRD 2020), UNESCO calls on radio stations to uphold diversity, both in their newsroom and on the airwaves. 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.” 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, 2020.
