Local radio personalities will air their shows from the event, as they did last year.

For the second consecutive year, Puerto Rico radio industry professionals are coming together to reaffirm the importance of radio and its standing as one of the island’s most influential media.

The event, organized by the Puerto Rico Radio Broadcasters Association, is slated for June 13-15 at the Conrad Condado Plaza in San Juan.

The Puerto Rico Radio Show will feature exhibitors, talks, lectures, and live broadcasts bringing together familiar on-air personalities. During the gathering, organizers will unveil the “Oye como va la radio” study on consumer and radio profiles conducted by Scarboroug and Arbitron, and will discuss the integration of social networks to contemporary radio, radio and the development of on-air personalities, as well as offer lectures and professional development seminars for technicians and engineers.

“The purpose of this historic radial gathering is to get colleagues and industry clients to join forces and reaffirm radio as a solid medium in the communications industry,” said Alan Corales, Puerto Rico Radio Broadcasters Association president, who added that “radio offers a variety of programming options and is vital to the success of advertising strategies.”

Commercial radio in Puerto Rico is more than 90 years old. The island has 127 radio stations, making it the U.S. jurisdiction with the most radio stations per square mile. The Puerto Rico Broadcasters Association was established in 1947 and has since been monitoring the development and welfare of local radio.
