We don't want to be in metros as we enjoy tier-2, tier-3 markets: Rahul Namjoshi, MY FM Business Head

MUMBAI: While radio stations would opt for top metros like Mumbai and Delhi to expand their branches, MY FM is happy in the tier-2 and tier-3 market cities. This firm revelation was made by MY FM Business head Rahul Namjoshi.

Speaking about the same, Namjoshi exclaimed, “We don’t want to be in metros as we are happy in our strength. We enjoy tier-2, tier-3 markets and we are having a good moolah over these markets.”

Besides, he also commented on the restrictions faced by Private FMs when it comes to content (news in specific). On this Rahul Namjoshi said, “Most of us come from the newsprint background. Our mother companies are having a good media background. So, we should be trusted. We are also equally responsible for the content. We want the liberty of airing news in our own way.”

MY FM has always ensured to deliver quality content and their RJs have played a pivotal role in the same. The radio station is currently investing in the education of their RJs. Revealing about the same, MY FM Business Head Rahul Namjoshi said, “We are investing in the education of our jocks i.e. we are educating them to talk in a different manner from what others are doing. We want them to sound intelligent and informative. We are asking them to evaluate each and every thing, they are offering to the listeners.”

“We are inviting a lot of trainers, not only from India but also from abroad i.e. developed countries where radio has been there for more than 50 years now. So, we are investing a lot on our product training side,” he concluded.

With MY FM giving some popular RJs like RJ Meenakshi, RJ Kartik, RJ Viny, etc.,the radio station’s investment in the education of their radio jockeys is noteworthy!
