We live in a technological-infused world and in times like these where nearly everything we could never have ever imagined, would’ve eventually become digital, it’s hard to believe that radio actually still exists. While playing an important role in society and most importantly, America over the past century, radio has found its way to still exist after all this time.
The radio played a crucial part in the U.S. in the 1900’s and was the device on which people all over America received the news of Martin Luther King Jr. speech and ultimately, the end of segregation.
Over the years, radio has evolved and is still recognized as a fairly popular source of communication and the receiving of news. Although the Smartphone takes the cake in most instances, the radio still thrives, especially in the U.S.
