We wish to pause to reflect on the importance of joining forces between the different sectors of current Puerto Rican society in the search for common well-being. Both the religious sector, as well as non-profit organizations, first responders including our industry, as well as the agencies in charge of ensuring physical and emotional health in our country, have played a fundamental role in recent crisis situations “expressed Alan Corales, president of ARPR, who highlighted the importance of the radio as a first responder as designated in Law 39 of the year 2019.

UNESCO emphasized in its declaration for the celebration of World Radio Day that, “it is a powerful means to celebrate humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for democratic discourse. At the global level, radio continues to be the most consumed medium. This unique ability to reach the widest audience means that radio can shape a society’s experience of diversity, stand as a stage for all voices to express themselves, be represented and be heard. Radio stations must serve diverse communities, offering a wide variety of programs, viewpoints, and content, and reflect the diversity of audiences in their organizations and operations.”

According to the president of the ARPR, “The radio medium continues to be one of the most reliable and used in the world, according to different international reports. In Puerto Rico we were pioneers by issuing one of the first transmission signals in the hemisphere. The celebration of this World Radio Day has a very special character for our industry because it marks the beginning of our first century, the details of which we will communicate in the coming days”, explained Corales.
