With increasing commercial pressure, do you think RJs these days manage to keep their content objective?
There are times when a station loses itself, there are times when it does not. Radio Indigo is completely local and has a city purpose. Indigo manages to weave its content with the commercial part. However, international standards are way better. They have wisely created and connected content.

Fashion stylist Gautam Kalra, according to me, can be a great RJ. He is an extrovert and thus, would fit the bill well.
