Today is National Broadcasting day. On this day in 1927, the first ever radio broadcast in the country went on the air from the Bombay Station under a private company, the Indian Broadcasting Company.

All India Radio has been serving to inform, educate and entertain the masses since it's inception, truly living up to its motto - Bahujan Hitaya  Bahujan Sukhaya. 

Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has wished the people on National broadcasting Day. He said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chosen radio for communication with the public every month because of his belief that radio is the only tool that has become a medium of entertainment along with news everywhere in the country. 

In a tweet, Mr Javadekar said, the government is going to make a new beginning. He said, one station can be replaced by a four new stations and through the new technology AIR service will reach more people through Medium wave (MW) and Frequency modulation (FM).
