Demonetisation causes FM radio revenues to dip over 20 pc 6.12.2016 Radioandmusic.com
MUMBAI: The after effects of demonetisation have been felt in every industry and radio is no exception to this. Recently, ENIL MD and CEO Prashant Panday spoke out on television about the impact of the move and its impact on ENIL and the radio sector overall. He said that the impact was an estimated 10 per cent dip in business, but he expects a more turbulent December, speaking to a news agency. He mentioned that there is still hope as the advertisers are not pulling back on the advertising. Stations across India agree that there has been a dip in revenues since 8 November, because the radio industry completely depends on advertisements for revenue. “It is being observed that advertisers across real estate, retail, FMCG, and education sectors have chosen to cut down their committed advertising drops, given the current scenario. Overall, there has been a 20 to 25 per cent drop in ad spends ever since the demonetisation policy was implemented by the government,” Reliance Broadcast Network Limited COO ...
