PUL Urges ‘Responsible Use’ Of Radio
MONROVIA, February 13 (LINA) - The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has called for the responsible use of radio in the country's search for sustainable development.
According to a PUL statement issued in observance of World Radio Day Monday, the Union recognizes that radio is playing significant roles in informing development interventions across Liberia.
World Radio Day seeks to celebrate the importance of radio in improving international cooperation, providing access to information and supporting free speech.
The day also promotes radio as a means of communication in times of need and emergency.
World Radio Day has been celebrated on February 13 each year since 2011 after being first proposed by Spain's Radio Academy in 2010.
The PUL asserts that radios have evolved to be “the most readily available medium that can instantaneously disseminate information widely - to include hard-to-reach places in Liberia.
Liberia currently boast of being home to more than 100 radio stations all of which provides medium for ordinary Liberians to comment on the governance of their country.
The radios, PUL observed must provide contents that will promote peace and security during and after the pending Presidential and Legislative Elections in Liberia.
Meanwhile, the PUL has lauded the men and women who are continuously enriching our radios with contents which support the survival of humanity.
