SABC Logo Image The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) declared the 13th of February as World Radio Day. This day is centred on celebrating radio broadcasting. Some of the endeavours include improving international cooperation among radio broadcasters and encouraging decision makers to provide access to information through radio. UNESCO has encouraged all countries to participate in this day by carrying out activities with various partners ranging from national, regional and international broadcasting associations and organisations, non-governmental organisation and the general public.

(View Poster) SABC Radio sees this as an opportunity for radio to showcase its distinctive value, which remains the medium to reach the widest audience. SABC Radio will be celebrating World Radio Day with all South Africans and informing them about its history and its importance in our daily lives. The SABC Radio network reaches 25 612 00 people on a daily basis with its 19 radio stations positioned to serve all South Africans including Channel Africa, an International Public Service Radio Station whose role is to contribute to the development agenda of Africa. “ Radio as a medium has the ability to reach different people from all walks of life and across any borders or boundaries especially in this era of a digitised world. Radio has been and will remain the source of information, news and entertainment to many people across the globe. The SABC Radio stations will continue to be at the helm of delivering the quality content that the people of South Africa know it for and will ensure that its listeners are always entertained” Siphelele Sixaso
