The general idea is that radio helps in community building. This is no doubt true when you consider that radio stations are probably the only media form that reaches even the remotest of places – that is if there is no internet there.
Radio broadcasts provide real-time information – because it is the easiest to use, and some that broadcast 24-hours a day can provide the most recent updates to listeners. Radio has the ability to reach across borders and can become a valuable source of information where reliable news is scarce.
Radio has become a way of broadening one’s personal world. You could link to the rest of the world through entertainment broadcasts, news broadcasts, lifestyle stories, and so on, almost instantaneously. It is everyone’s friend.
