About the Holiday

National Radio Day celebrates the invention of the radio. One person cannot be linked to the invention of the radio as several inventors working on different aspects of the radio all had a part in the invention. The radio was invented in the late 1800's but was not widely used until the 1920's when the first broadcast stations started airing programs. The first broadcast were news and world events programs. They later developed in to radio shows that are the forefathers of today's television programs.
