Deutsche Bank, represented by Subhajit Chatterjee and Vibhendu Tewari from Mumbai, has won the national finals of the corporate music quiz contest ‘Radio City MQ’ that was held on October 12 in Mumbai. IMRB International, represented by Ameya Sawant and Neha Gahlaut from Mumbai, was declared first runner-up, while Evalueserve from Delhi was second runner-up.
Rana Barua, National Head-Marketing, Radio City, said, “The response we received for ‘Radio City MQ’ in the very first year of its inception has been overwhelming. The format, concept and execution of the contest have been appreciated by corporates nationally.”
Commenting on the win, Deutsche Bank’s Vibhendu Tewari said, “Thanks to the innovative rounds, the cheering audience and the pulsating atmosphere, we had an amazing time.” Tewari’s partner at the contest, Subhajit Chatterjee, added, “This was a welcome change from the routine work at office. I really wish more people would come up with such concepts, where we all could relax, chill and just have some fun.”
Hosted by Brian Tellis and host of Mumbai’s ‘Radio City Breakfast Show’ RJ Archana, the ‘Radio City MQ’ national finals saw two top scoring teams each from Mumbai (Deutsche Bank and IMRB International), Delhi (Evalueserve and Equinox) and Bangalore (BizTruss Integrated Services and Wipro Technologies) vie for the national title.
The national finals comprised five interactive rounds – based on Radio City’s programme schedule, an audio quiz section, a round on nine artistes, a buzzer round and an audio-visual round on English music. The surprise package of the evening was an engaging audience round hosted by RJ Archana. Four people from the audience were called on stage for a quick rapid fire round, and Harmeet Singh Arora from Zapak Digital Entertainment won a group outdoor adventure package at this round.
