World Radio Day 2015

World Radio Day 2015
European radio sales houses and their industry partners
celebrate the power of radio

This year, for the third time, European radio sales houses are also taking the opportunity to celebrate World Radio Day, as declared by the UNESCO at its 36th General Conference in November 2011, and invite the industry to applaud a medium that forms a key part in the lives of millions of people around the world.

This year, egta has chosen to highlight radio’s ability to give each listener a unique experience within the theatre of the mind, whilst at the same time conveying messages to millions of people simultaneously via one of the few truly mass media available to marketers. Three radio spots commissioned by egta demonstrate this unique capacity of radio to create images on the canvas of our imagination.

With a dedicated website www.egtaradioday.com egta highlights radio’s core strengths: its ability to reach a huge and engaged audience, its exceptional offer to advertisers, its creative power and its innovation for the listeners of today and tomorrow. We encourage visitors to discover a selection of best practice examples related to promotion of radio as a medium and supporting radio brands.

The World Radio Day recognises radio as a mass medium reaching the widest audience in the world, offering powerful communication at low cost. Radio reaches remote communities and vulnerable people. It enables debate and supports efforts in emergency communication and disaster relief. But radio has another side to celebrate: it brings music, sport, entertainment, drama, local news and content to its loyal audiences. Radio is a companion to billions of people around the world.

However, great content comes at a price, and egta’s role is to support its members – the sales houses that represent the radio industry in Europe and beyond – as they deliver a sound financial base for radio. All private and many public service radio broadcasters rely to different degrees on revenues from advertising, and it is crucial that advertisers and their media agencies recognise the true value of the medium for building brands and driving sales.

Happy World Radio Day!
