Hyderabad will soon have its own radio station, which will discuss the issues people here are facing. But more than anything, the service needs your support to sustain and make a mark with quality programmes.
THE FIRST residential radio service is coming up in Hyderabad in the coming days, which will cover a 10-km radius area in Tarnaka (Secunderabad station area).
The Tarnaka Residents Welfare Association has already got the required licence from the concerned authorities and it will be launched soon. The estimated cost of the studio will be Rs.20 lakhs and to run the station a monthly expenditure of one lakh rupees is reqired.
According to The Times of India, the radio will be utilized as a voice of residents' grievance redressal forum. The radio service started by Welfare Association will not seek any grants from the state government and would run with the help of advertisements, which they will play for five minutes in every one hour-programme.
The community radio will also have interaction programmes with the local politicians and officers. Regarding entertainment, the association has not given any information.
