AIR FM stations inch up in Delhi, Mumbai, B'lore

All India Radio's FM Gold station has strengthened its position in both Mumbai and Delhi, securing the third place in both metros, ahead of other much marketed private FM stations.

Fever was a close third with a share of 16.4 per cent, having gained 1.4 points during the week. AIR's FM Rainbow stayed ahead of rivals Radio City, Radio One and Red FM with a share of 11.6 per cent, having lost 0.2 points during the week.

Delhi: Mirchi kept its lead but lost 1.2 points to end with a share of 23.5 per cent in the capital. Fever kept snapping at Mirchi's heels despite losing 0.1 points, ending with  a share of 21.9 per cent.
