UNESCO has proclaimed February 13th as World Radio Day to celebrate radio as a medium. To help raise awareness we asked senior management at Pure and our parent company, Imagination Technologies, to tell us what radio means to them:
Paul Smith, general manager for Pure says, “My drive to and from work would not be the same without listening to BBC Radio 5 Live on my in-car digital radio.”
Colin Crawford, who will sadly be leaving Pure in the coming months after 23 years at the company says, “I love radio because, unlike TV, it celebrates the everyday”.
Nick Hucker, Pure’s new director of marketing says, “In the late 19th century radio was referred to as ‘ the wireless’ in the UK. Back then the invention enabled the sending of short signals – today, radio devices bring communication and joy to people in all walks of life, in every corner of the world.”
Hossein Yassaie, CEO, Imagination Technologies, says “I discovered my love of electronics taking radios apart when I was a child – and of course putting them back together again!”
The aim of UN World Radio Day is to raise awareness for this vital medium which survives bravely in the new digital world and has a lot potential for the future!
