Four radio players have commenced new stations in Ranchi, Sholapur and Coimbatore during the week gone by. Ranchi listeners can now tune in to Shri Puran Radio Group’s Radio Mantra and BAG Film’s Radio Dhamaal. Adlabs-owned Big FM has begun its operations in Sholapur, while Radio City has strengthened its presence in the South with a new station in Coimbatore.
Ranchi is Radio Mantra’s eighth FM operation, and Radio Dhamaal’s sixth. With this, BAG Films has completed the set-up of its eight stations and has employed RCS products for the site in Ranchi.
Big FM launched their 38th station in Sholapur last week. The current second phase of radio launches will take the station count for Big FM to several mini-metros, including at the end of which, the total count would go up to 45. The station has designed utilities such as traffic and weather updates along with time checks and health tips to help optimise the listener’s time management and health. Another important programme offering of the station is the ‘Acknowledgement of local Heroes in Society’.
Starting operations of their second station in Tamil Nadu, Radio City has launched in Coimbatore. This launch marks Radio City’s 13th FM station in the country. The station has planned a host of programmes along with Tamil music mix. The music will be in sync with the station’s vibes – an invigorating new music format of Tamil adult contemporary (AC) music. AC is a music format which not limited to a specific genre of music, but is a mélange of selected tracks across different genres comprising songs that have been hits over the last two decades.
