AIR stresses on 'FMisation' to check declining fortunes of Prasar Bharati 23.5.2016
NEW DELHI: All India Radio is resorting to greater FMisation, sale of archival releases, renting of auditoria, enhancement of commercial revenue etc. to halt the decline in the Internal and Extra Budgetary Resources (IEBR) of Prasar Bharati since 2014-15. The Parliamentary Standing Committee for Information Technology which goes into issues relating to Information and Broadcasting appreciated steps being taken to reverse this declining trend.

Other steps include engaging the services of professional marketing teams and providing incentives to achievers that exceed revenue targets.

"It's time for radio to go from being city-specific to micro-city specific" 19.5.2016
MUMBAI: It is pertinent that when Abraham Thomas talks about radio listenership in India, he often replaces the word 'listener' with 'consumer'. The industry veteran who has straddled the worlds of print, television, radio and digital, clearly knows the mind of the average Indian. “The consumer wants to consume content, whatever the platform”, affirms the Radio City CEO, He should know. Thomas has over two decades worth of experience with the likes of MTV, Sony, Red FM and a brief fling with the Delhi headquartered Hit FM. His insights and assessment of the radio scenario echo the current sentiment of the media industry, but Thomas is already thinking two steps ahead. In the six months he has been at Radio City, he has instituted some radical as well as some subtle changes in the organisation’s programming and marketing. Most radio stations have toyed with the concept of offering creative services as add-ons for advertisers, but Thomas christened City’s new initiative Audacity – an aptly pro-active term ...

Bed time tales - is FM radio wooing the late night listener? 16.5.2016
MUMBAI: Every night, as millions of Indians count sheep to reach somnolent bliss, radio executives are busy counting newly found listeners and advertising returns on their innovative  late night shows. The vast network of radio stations across the country has a daunting task though – the ‘late night band’ holds different definitions in different markets, and late night content that may work in one city may not in another. Add to the confusing mix the advertiser’s long held perception that the late night band is a weak link in the programming line up – and you will understand why the witching hour is a such a vexing task for radio programmers in India. Nevertheless, networks like Indigo FM and Rajasthan Patrika’s radio venture FM Tadka have discovered that there is a wide-awake audience for late-night call-in talk shows even in smaller cities. The returns have however not been as encouraging even as the private FM radio industry completes close to a decade of mature operations. The cost of a 15, 30 or ...
