Public Radio Broadcasting Day 2023 #PublicRadioBroadcastingDay
On January 13, 1910 the first ever public radio broadcast was sent out right here in NYC. Since then the form has grown, delivering the content we know and love over the airwaves. We celebrate every year on January 13!
On Public Radio Broadcasting Day, observed annually on January 13, the world celebrates a very special piece of technology — the radio. The day honors those who invented the radio and devised public broadcasting. It gave us a newfound appreciation for technology and its importance in our lives.
