Mirchi launched its operations in Kanpur on June 16, while BIG FM launched its on June 19. When speaking about their respective stations, officials from both the stations are expectantly excited about the new launch.

“The programming mix of the station has been put together after much research and understanding of our listeners’ requirements,” noted Rehan Khan, Cluster Head-UP, BIG FM.

Meanwhile, Vinay Pratap Singh, Station Head, Radio Mirchi Kanpur, is confident of winning the hearts of the people by “delivering programmes that are relevant to the people of the city. This is a station for the people of Kanpur -- playing their music and speaking their language.”
