HISTORY ON OLAMOND NAIJA: FEBRUARY 13, 2020 WORLD RADIO DAY!
Radio is a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for democratic discourse. At the global level, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. This unique ability to reach out to the widest audience means radio can shape a society’s experience of diversity, stand as an arena for all voices to speak out, be represented and heard. Radio stations should serve diverse communities, offering a wide variety of programs, viewpoints and content, and reflect the diversity of audiences in their organizations and operations.
Radio is uniquely positioned to bring communities together and foster positive dialogue for change. By listening to its audiences and responding to their needs, radio services provide the diversity of views and voices needed to address the challenges we all face.
For World Radio Day 2020, UNESCO discussed few challenges most radio broadcasters faces today . Here are few of the problems:
UNESCO calls on radio stations to uphold diversity, both in their newsroom and on the airwaves.
Owners of radio stations are implored to celebrate their staff and make sure there’s no delay in their salaries as this will further sustain their zeal and passion for the job.
The founder/ CEO Olamond Communications, Prince Olamijuwonlo David Aduroja also utilizes this medium to celebrate the Director of the National Broadcast Academy, Engineer Abiola, for his role and contribution towards professional broadcasting via the National Broadcast Academy training to both practicing broadcasters and aspirants. Apparently, journalists are the mouth-piece of the masses, therefore their voices deserves to be celebrated.
