Radio is a device where news, music and other events from around the world are broadcast. The history of radio is very interesting because its service has been present in the world for more than a hundred years and many technological changes are taking place continuously in it.
The first successful radio transmission occurred in 1901 when Guglielmo Marconi sent a message across the Atlantic Ocean. By the 1920s, radio broadcasting had become a popular source of entertainment and information, with radio stations spreading throughout the world.
During World War II, radio played an important role in disseminating news and propaganda, and the development of portable radios enabled soldiers to stay connected to the outside world.

In the modern era, television threatened radio's popularity, but radio eventually managed to survive by emphasizing music, talk shows, and news programs. The advent of digital technology in the 21st century significantly changed the way radio is broadcast, with many people now listening to radio via the Internet and mobile devices.
Despite these changes, radio remains an important medium of communication and entertainment, connecting people around the world.
