In 2020, the industry of radio is turning 100 years old! To celebrate this special anniversary, we’re putting the spotlight on the enduring value of radio. We want to recognize the enduring value and continued importance of a medium that reaches 272 million Americans each week.
To help us celebrate 100 years of radio, the NAB and the GAB have created a Tool Kit for Radio stations to use on the air and on social media. We hope TV stations especially those who share call letters originally owned by Radio stations to recognize their “sister” medium.
Here’s to 100 wonderful years of radio, and to at least 100 more!
The GAB #Radio100 committee helped to create a series of announcements that capture the essence of Georgia radio’s role in history. Over the past 100 years, local radio has served the community with news and entertainment in a variety of different ways. These announcements showcase Georgia’s diverse populations, cultures, lifestyles, and interests. The GAB asks you to help us celebrate this milestone by running these announcements on your stations.
Please click the button below now for all 60-second announcements available in all formats.
The National Association of Broadcasters has created a #Radio100 Toolkit on its website. You can find the toolkit using the link in the button below. There, your station will have access to shareable video, photos, web banner ads, live reads, and more! The GAB encourages you to participate in whatever way you can as many times as you can. Lastly, be on the lookout for more information from us soon about what we’re planning next.
