World Radio Day – 13th February

13 February 2019

Today (February 13th) has been designated by UNESCO as World Radio Day. It celebrates radio as a medium, and particularly the impact it has on people around the world.

WESC Foundation’s own radio station, VI Radio, has been broadcasting from our Exeter campus since 2003. All the presenters are visually impaired, and most are current or former students of WESC Foundation’s school or college (a number of young people accessing other services also enjoy radio presenting as a hobby).

The dedicated studio sits in the heart of the ‘student village’ accommodation, and is available to WESC Foundation’s young people as part of a hobby or even as part of a qualification.

For more information about VI Radio, or to find out when the station is broadcasting, please visit the VI Radio website.
