Our Internet radio station debuted in February, 2012 and programming focuses on health IT. You can listen 24 hours a day hearing a popular mix of talk shows, conference speeches, and recorded educational events. Between shows you will hear short audio interviews at industry conferences and Health Matters PSAs from the National Institute of Health. We started the station to have a platform for our radio show MU Live! where we interviewed some of the biggest thought leaders in our industry.
World Radio Day Message: UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova
From news and public debate to music and entertainment, radio continues to inform, captivate and inspire us in a way that no other medium can. But radio is so much more than a forum for information and entertainment. It reaches more people in more places than any other medium. It’s a bridge of communication for remote communities, developing regions and vulnerable populations, sometimes with no other connection to the outside world. Perhaps no other platform can have the real-time reach between people and across cultures. From the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) about celebrating World Radio Day.
