Celebrating World Radio Day

Media Owners Association Chairperson Agnes Kalekye has called on the government to support radio sustainability.

This comes as Kenya joins the world in marking the World Radio Day 2024.

Kalekye said that sustaining radio operations in the digital environment requires investment and support.

"I call upon the Government to support radio sustainability, in Kenya. Radio Stations, both big and small, play an important role, in providing local news, promoting cultural diversity, and fostering a sense of community. They serve as a platform for dialogue, sharing stories, and connecting people from all walks of life," she said.

She called on the government to allocate resources towards radio's growth and development.
