World Radio Day is celebrated on February 13 each year. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) celebrates the ninth edition of World Radio Day. The proposal to celebrate World Radio Day came from Spain. Support was given to the Academia Espanola de la Radio project manager, and in 1946 United Nations Broadcasting Day was launched, proposed by the Director General of UNESCO. At the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly, a resolution was passed declaring February 13 World Radio Day.
