Vineet Singh Hukmani, MD & CEO , Next Radio Ltd, said: “We are happy to see a turnaround in our Q3 17-18 numbers that ride on highly improved cost efficiencies and a consistent improvement in performance across all our radio markets. Furthermore, these are ‘pure radio growth numbers’ as Radio One is the only ‘targeted’ radio player that does not do on ground events/activations thereby protecting the full value of our on air inventory. We are seeing a glimmer of positivity in the economy thanks to the rising manufacturing index numbers. We would like to believe that the problems faced by media due to demonetization, GST and RERA are behind us and that the radio industry will be able to post a 9-10% growth in the next financial year. Our investments into our on-air radio product and our NEW online streaming product www.1cast.in are deepening our engagement with upscale audiences beyond our 7 FM radio metro markets. Our new online business radio channel ‘Business ONE’ is being loved by its premium listeners. We are also very happy to be adjudged ‘The most attractive media-radio’ brand by TRA research in an annual study that is conducted across 10,000 brands in 16 cities. We feel the radio industry needs to raise rates, given the exorbitant amount of inventory utilization and we are announcing an 18% average rate increase across our 7 markets effective March 1st 2018, to meet our increased investments into upscale audience engagement on air & online.”
