Software Engineers Prashant Nandakumar and Karan Rath from Wipro Technologies were the first runners-up.
The regional finals began after an initial round of written eliminations, with four top scoring teams -- Cricinfo, Wipro Technologies, Contract Advertising and BizTruss -- beating teams from corporates like Infosys, Lenovo, Accenture, Yahoo!, Axis Bank, Madura Garments and GroupM, among others, to battle for the top spot on ‘Radio City MQ’.
National Head-Marketing, Radio City, said, “We’re overwhelmed at the entries that just kept pouring in and the unbeatable enthusiasm of Bangalore’s corporate ‘Radio Cityzens’. Kudos to their infectious competitive team spirit, the first regional final of ‘Radio City MQ’ has been a resounding success.”
With Bangalore settled to gun for the national title, the action on ‘Radio City MQ’ now moves to Delhi, with the regional finals on October 5, followed by the Mumbai regional finals on October 12. The two top scoring teams from Bangalore would be joined by the winning teams from Delhi for the grande finale slated for October 12.
The Bangalore regional finals comprised six interactive rounds based on Radio City’s programme schedule; including an audio quiz section, a round on nine artistes, a female artistes special, a buzzer round, an audio-visual round on English music and a ‘Whatte Fun Karaoke Round’. The surprise package of the evening was the ‘Joker Round’ hosted by RJ Vasanthi. Supporters of the four participating teams were called on stage from the audience for a quick rapid fire round.
