Radio occupies one of the leading places among the greatest achievements of modern engineering. It was invented by Professor A.S. Popov, a talented Russian scientist, who demonstrated the first radio-receiving set in the world on May 7, 1895. The Day of Radio was first observed in Moscow on May 7, 1945. From that time on, May 7 has been marked in Armenia as Radio Day.
As radio continues to evolve in the digital age, it remains the medium that reaches the widest audience worldwide.
Radio broadcasts can provide real-time information, broadcasted 24 hours a day to provide the most recent updates to listeners. Stations have the ability to reach across borders and become a source of information where reliable news is scarce.
The enthusiastic participation and passion that marked the Day prove that radio is a medium for the future, and echoed the call for greater inclusion of young people as creators and producers of radio programming.
