AIR completes feasibility study on sharing towers with FM radio licensees

All India Radio (AIR) has completed the feasibility study on sharing of AIR towers with private FM radio licensees in metros. AIR officials have deferred the final decision on the issue by a day or two. According to sources a high-level meeting has been scheduled for today to deliberate on the issue.

AIR has been re-examining the feasibility of sharing its towers with private FM radio companies in metros following some apprehensions over the capacity of AIR towers. Prasar Bharati had made an offer to the FM licensees for co-location of their transmitters on AIR towers in metro cities, about a month ago.

While the metro region plans of AIR-FM resource sharing are yet to take off, AIR is focussing on non-metros instead. To begin with, AIR is signing a memorandum of understanding with Ispat Group’s Music Broadcast Private Ltd. (MBPL) for its Lucknow station on Tuesday. Star is supplying content for MBPL and also marketing it. It will be the second FM station for MBPL, after the one in Bangalore.
