People have forgotten that radio is actually the first social media. Everywhere in the world the best interactions before digital came because radio was live. It is digital which has learned from radio and not the other way around. However, digital has done a far better job of upscaling it, getting every single guy onto Facebook and Twitter. What we realised is that we need to get some of that magic, some of that dynamics of social media back into radio.
The customer has changed drastically. They respond less to ‘STATIC’ media and more to fluid live conversations across day parts. There is no PRIME TIME for them - a dated concept that exists only in media owner’s minds and in MEDIA memory based on past trends writes Vineet Singh Hukmani, MD & CEO, Next Radio Ltd ( 94.3 Radio One)
