RADIO TURNS 100 THIS YEAR
Radio turns 100 this year! To celebrate this important milestone, we're kicking off a year of #Radio100 and putting the spotlight on radio's enduring value. 

Our first feature , released in conjunction with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, highlighted radio's integral role in fostering democracy and civil discourse. 

We're using #Radio100 on social media all year to highlight big moments in radio and the innovations driving us forward. Follow us  @nabtweets  and  join the conversation  about how radio continues to thrive, despite myriad entertainment options available to listeners. 

Here's how you can join in:
  1. Identify key moments at your station to share on social using #Radio100 and post these throughout the year. Radio has covered the greatest moments in history – share some of your favorites.
  2. Encourage your listeners to post their favorite radio moments on your station's social pages using #Radio100.
  3. Retweet and share NAB's feature stories and posts on radio's intrinsic value.
Together, we'll spotlight radio's 100 incredible years and look forward to at least 100 more!
