A radio wave is an electromagnetic wave. It's a form of electromagnetic radiation.

The term "radio" is the name given to a part of the spectrum of electromagnetic waves that is used for radio and television broadcasting, mobile phones, terrestrial and satellite wireless communications networks, etc.

The whole wide spectrum of electromagnetic waves has frequencies (and wavelengths) ranging from "audio" to "radio" to "infrared" to "visual light" to "X-Rays", and beyond to "gamma rays" at the very top end of the spectrum.
