RADIO / ICDB: Caracol Radio brings young voices to Colombia's airwaves

Caracol Radio brings young voices to Colombia?s airwaves

Each December, UNICEF's International Children?s Day of Broadcasting involves young people worldwide in media programming and production, giving them a chance to express their opinions on major issues and develop new skills. Here is one in a series of stories about youth media.

NEW YORK, USA, 27 November 2006 ? Colombia?s children and young people have actively participated in the International Children?s Day of Broadcasting (ICDB) since 1997 and have twice received the special honour presented at the International Emmy Awards for television programming produced to celebrate ICDB.

For the last three years, preparations for ICDB have become a major production at Caracol Radio ? one of the most important radio networks in Latin America ? with the support of UNICEF.
