"The radio sector has again turned out an impressive performance, not surprising considering that it accounts for more than 30 per cent of media consumption time, but gets only 5-6 per cent of advertising revenues. We believe radio will continue to grow faster than other media in the future as well. We are excited that the PM himself believes so strongly in radio, and hope that the Ministry of I&B under Mr. Arun Jaitley will quickly complete the auctions process commenced by Mr. Prakash Javadekar. Overall, we remain buoyant about radio's prospects in the years to come"
