Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel today congratulated producers and listeners on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of radio on the island.

In his Twitter profile, the president wished «that for the next 100 years it will continue to sound with the Cuban spirit that distinguishes it.

With the beginning of radio transmissions on August 22, 1922, the largest Antillean island was among the first countries in Latin America to have this type of communication.

The accelerated development of the medium allowed that less than a year later 24 transmitting stations were registered, 14 of them in Havana.

By the end of 1923, the figure rose to a total of 31 stations throughout the island.

The creation of Radio Rebelde in the mountains of the Sierra Maestra, on February 24, 1958, marked the beginning of the National Radio System, focused on the dissemination of knowledge, culture, recreation and the ideological, social, ethical and aesthetic values of the Cuban people.

Cuban radio began its first digital transmission in 1998. Today, the 97 radio stations of the System produce their digital audios.
