Abraham Thomas



"Radio offers hyper local reach, local insights, local talent turned influencers, to create interesting shows and tell powerful brand stories. This has created a sweet spot for the advertisers to consider it as a primary medium in their advertising plan. Radio as an industry has evolved with digital times to audio entertainment, where platform agnostic content is created to be placed and promoted across various mediums. A prestigious platform like India Radio Forum adds volume and credibility to these efforts of the radio players which is perfectly captured in this year's theme 'The New Wave' at the IRF. 


We are all looking forward to another eventful and celebratory night for the radio and media industry." 

"Radio possesses the unique ability to seamlessly integrate with other mediums like digital, print, outdoor and TV. This makes radio one of the primary mediums for creating and experimenting with unique content while giving advertisers an opportunity to explore innovative ways to tell their brand stories.


India Radio Forum’s theme for this year, ‘The New Wave’, captures the essence of these new-age and path-breaking efforts undertaken by the radio players, and we look forward to yet another celebration of the immense power of radio."
