Objective

Radio as a medium is not fully explored. Being an insider, I can offer a clear picture of the grass on the other side, and trust me, it is green!! There are life-changing experiences. Some stories will bring a smile while some will end up in moist eyes. But stories are always interesting. Stories have the power to grip us and bind us. And these are radio stories, stories that are cooked by the radio! So the power is nothing but only double :)

Description

I have been associated with radio for more than 5 years now. It is a local medium. People get attached to the RJs and the announcers, and how! I have come across stories that are heart wrenching. And stories that elate me. I would want to share these experiences as a radio professional. It would also offer knowledge about the power of radio.
Someone needs to tell these tales. And someone needs to lend an ear to them as well. These stories have magic, they have associations, they have feelings. It is said that the secret of the Great Stories is that they have no secrets. Great stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again.

Requirements

Listeners and dreamers :)

Speaker bio

I have completed my Masters in Development Communication. My first job was at a magazine as a Writer and Editor. Radio happened as an internship first and the passion was injected, there and then. I did my dissertation thesis on the power of radio as well!
I have been with a leading Radio Station since more than three years now and feel there is a desperate need of sharing radio stories.
I have had the chance to be a guest at the All India Radio functions, trainings and have also been at private Radio Workshops to share stories and create more!
