Radio programming

Radio can be a vital tool to reach a wide audience.

We use radio programmes to share lifesaving information with communities, and as a platform to encourage open discussions and feedback on a range of important topics.

These tools and resources will enable you to use radio programming effectively.

Two Red Cross workers - one male, one female - record a radio programme in a studio with a mic, computers and a sound deck.
