Hindi version of Radiocity.in launched

Radio City has launched its new age web platform radiocity.in Hindi, becoming perhaps the only radio network in India to offer an exclusive Hindi website. Radio City was one of the first radio networks In India to take the digital route with the launch of radiocity.in. With the introduction of the new Hindi web-avatar of this property, Radio City listeners will now be able to access premium content on http://hindi.radiocity.in/, which will serve as the e-face of Radio City’s 39 stations.

Radio City has been a pioneer in conceptualizing innovative ideas to engage with their listeners at a micro local level. The launch of radiocity.in Hindi is aligned with this strategy of diversification and localization by offering its digital platform for their regional audience. With dedicated Hindi playlists and podcasts of the most popular Radio City shows, the website will also offer premium Hindi web radio stations cutting across film, international and devotional genres.

“Regional language internet users have been growing at a much faster pace than English with 38% of the total Indian internet user base expected to comprise of Hindi users by 2021. Organic engagement for local content is comparatively higher and we want to tap into this potential while providing our regional users the ease and accessibility to content in Hindi,” said Abraham Thomas, CEO, Radio City. “The launch of radiocity.in Hindi aims at addressing the needs of this growing plethora of tech savvy regional audience to provide them with the best content in the most convenient format,” he added.

Commenting on the launch of the regional platform, Rachna Kanwar, COO, Digital, Jagran New Media, said, “As we expand into more cities and genres this year, the first logical extension online will be to make our content available to listeners in their preferred language. As a large chunk of our audio content is in Hindi, it only follows that we make this option available to listeners who consume content in Hindi. This is a first of its kind initiative towards language personalization by any FM network in the country and we hope to further diversify into multi-lingual offerings in the future.”

Radio City originals like Love Guru – for all the answers about love, relationships and beyond, GIG City – India’s radio concert, Joke Studio – the comedy destination, Babber Sher – the long running sparkler on Indian Radio and Radio City Gold featuring the legends of Indian music, among others, will now be available to the online Hindi listeners.
