"It has been a fabulous association for us at ICICI Lombard with 94.3 Radio One India in all 7 cities. We are the Title Sponsors for the “Get Some Sun” program. Over the last many years, this travel focused program has helped us spread awareness about our travel insurance offering to a very relevant audience all over India, said Sanjeev Mantri, Executive Director, ICICI Lombard General Insurance.

Anil Machado, Chief Content officer at 94.3 Radio One said ‘We realized the opportunity 5 years ago to engage our tribe of upscale listeners with superlative content that interfaces with their real lives and global travel is a huge interest for the Radio One listener. This is a ‘higher travel exposure’ listener as compared to the listeners of mass radio stations. Our upscale listener/traveller wants to visit many global cities in his lifetime, not to mention close by local destinations at a very high frequency of travel outside their city of residence. We call this loyal ‘travel gang’ of listeners ‘Sun Chasers'. In 2013, we kicked off this radio traveller movement with a song by the in-house Radio One Band that made listeners notice the opportunity and sign up for GET SOME SUN !
