In honor of the 2nd annual World Radio Day on February 13, Fundación Comunica and the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) are creating a series of short radio pieces on the topic of radio. They are inviting radio researchers and broadcasters to submit their radio story ideas online through October 19. The resulting series, “Did You Know That?”, will be “a series of short (1.5 to 2 minutes) radio spots in which broadcasters and researchers, can share their facts, figures and anecdotes about radio with the world.”
If a story idea is accepted, UNESCO will call the person who submitted the idea in order to record the story by phone. The piece will then be edited and shared with radio stations all over the world, including “international broadcasters, 257 public radio broadcasters, and other UNESCO partners” as well as online.
What story would you like to tell the world about radio?
