On the logic of junior RJs, Sumantra Dutta, COO Radio City comments, “There is a lot of potential and talent in today’s children and Radio City is happy to provide a platform to the children to demonstrate their abilities. The show will target kids, and offer content and music that appeals to them; it’s a show for the kids, hosted by kids.”
