Even in today’s world of digital communications, radio reaches more people than any other media platform.
It conveys vital information and raises awareness on important issues.
And it is a personal, interactive platform where people can air their views, concerns, and grievances. Radio can create a community.
For the United Nations, especially our peacekeeping operations, radio is a vital way of informing, reuniting and empowering people affected by war.
On this World Radio Day, let us recognize the power of radio to promote dialogue, tolerance and peace.
