This year’s event is held under the theme of “Radio and Diversity.”

Polish public broadcaster Polish Radio’s first trial transmission was aired on February 1, 1925, while the service’s regular broadcasting started on April 18, 1926.

In a message for World Radio Day, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres highlighted how the pioneering medium celebrates diversity and contributes to global peace.

“Radio offers a wonderful display of diversity in its formats, in its languages, and among radio professionals themselves. This sends an important message to the world,” Guterres said.

He added: “As we strive to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and tackle the climate crisis, radio has a key role to play as a source of information and inspiration alike.”

Listen to the full message here:

World Radio Day was established by the UN General Assembly in 2012.

The date, February 13, marks the establishment of United Nations Radio in 1946.
