Radio remains the most dynamic, responsive and attractive means available, adapting to changes in the 21st century and providing new ways of interacting and participating.

Where social networks and fragmentation of the public can restrict us to "media cocoons" where all share the same ideas, radio is particularly well suited to bringing together communities and stimulating a positive dialogue for change. By listening to audiences and responding to their needs, radio offers a variety of perspectives and voices to meet the challenges we all face.

Radio informs us and transforms us, through entertainment, information and public participation. Having a radio means you're never alone - you'll always find a friend on the radio.
