World Radio Day is an observance day held annually on 13 February. This day was proclaimed on 2011 by the United Nations and the date marks the anniversary of the day the United Nations established United Nations Radio in 1946. World Radio Day is a day to celebrate and remember the way radio touches peoples lives and brings democratic debate, information, entertainment and sense of togetherness to people from all corners of the world.
