About Local Radio Day
Local Radio Day began in 2015 to highlight the value of local radio to communities and to celebrate the unique relationship between local broadcasting and listeners.
The day, organised by Local Radio Alliance since 2019, is an occasion to not only celebrate but also strengthen the connections that local radio brings – to communities, to industry professionals, and to individuals.
Local Radio Day was created in 2015 by UKRD and brings together local stations on a national level.
In recent years, local radio has achieved new heights of relevance; the need to unite during isolation, to join meaningful and supportive networks, has never been greater. Local radio has proved an invaluable medium to facilitate such connections.
