World Radio Day is celebrated on February 13th every year. Even in times of countless online platforms and WhatsApp, radio has remained the most resilient and far-reaching communication medium. The history of radio goes back over 110 years. According to the United Nations, the radio celebrates World Radio Day as « part of human history ». Radio has adapted over the decades and has played a key role in disseminating information to people in remote corners of the world during times of crisis including the ongoing Covid pandemic. The popularity of « Mann Ki Baat » by Prime Minister Narendra Modi shows the importance of radio as a communication medium.

UNESCO has asked radio stations to celebrate the 10th anniversary of World Radio Day with three sub-themes: Development, Innovation and Connection. </ "New world, new radio" is an "ode to the resilience of radio," says the UN. World Radio Day was launched in 2011 by the member states of UNESCO and adopted as an international day by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2012.
