World Radio Day

In cooperation with UNESCO the WRD Committee encourages all countries to celebrate World Radio Day by planning activities in partnership with regional, national and international broadcasters, non-governmental organizations, the media and the public. Center stage for the activities on 13 February 2013 is a web platform on which all public, private, online and community radio organizations together with radio professionals and listeners worldwide can exchange their views and support for radio. As radio is all about listening, everyone is invited to upload sound bites (one-minute maximum length) to this website and download others to broadcast them. And ‘everyone’ means everyone who wants to deliver a testimonial on radio: public radio, private radio, community radio, independent producers, listeners, fans, etc. More information on how it works:

All radio organizations are also invited to actively ask their listeners to participate by publishing the promo banners on their website or by sharing the link on Facebook or Twitter. To download a WRD banner please click here:

The EBU is part of the International Committee for the World Radio Day (WRD), constituted by agreement among the most representative broadcasting organizations that supported the implementation of World Radio Day within the United Nations Organization.
