AIR-IAB nominates AROI convenor Rajiv Mishra as Secy General for Asia Pacific region

The Board of Directors of the Asociación Internacional de Radiodifusión (AIR) and International Association of Broadcasting (IAB) have nominated Rajiv Mishra, convener of AROI, the private FM radio body in India, as Secretary General of AIR-IAB for Asia Pacific Region at a meeting held in Montevideo, Uruguay. AIR-IAB is the global body of private FM radio and television channels, with more than 17,000 radio frequencies as its members.

Commenting on his nomination, Mishra said, “This is a great achievement for AROI and the Indian radio industry. The world is now looking towards India for its booming FM radio industry. I believe, in coming days Indian radio industry will be a case study for the whole world as we expect the single frequency norm to be implemented in India.”

Mishra will be presenting a paper on commercial broadcasting industry scenario in the Asia-Pacific region to AIR-IAB board of director at IAB’s General Assembly meeting in Guatemala to be held during October 3-5, 2006. Mishra will also work closely with AIR-IAB’s Director General, Dr Héctor Oscar Amengual, for the expansion of AIR-IAB to the Asia Pacific region, especially with important private commercial broadcasting countries such as Japan, Korea, Australia, and the Philippines.

AIR-IAB granted membership to AROI in April, 2006 within a few days of the formation of the industry body. IAB has also written a letter to the I&B Ministry demanding to allow news on Indian private FM radio stations.
