RED FM, together with 13 radio stations, got together yesterday to announce the Radio Day celebration taking place today.
The event that started at 11am also witnessed an exclusive showcase of all the stations’ cruisers and disk jocks that attracted the attention of curious onlookers.
Today, 090909, marks the inauguration of Radio Day in Malaysia by the 19 members of Commercial Radio Malaysia (CRM), celebrating the continuing growth of listenership and a healthy rise in advertising revenue, as attested by a survey conducted by AC Nielsen.
Apart from RTM, CRM members account for 19 stations covering Bahasa Malaysia, English, Chinese and Tamil in multiple formats.
“Radio is still relevant in the Internet age, and there is every reason to believe that we can coexist and expand our reach,” says CRM president Datuk Borhanuddin Osman.
“We want to connect with our audience interactively and maintain the close relationship we have enjoyed with our listeners.”
Radio Day, says Borhan, is a show of unity among the commercial radio stations to give listeners the broadest mix of entertainment and news.
To all Red FM listeners, look out for the convoy of cruisers that will be on the road today starting from 11am.
The Red Ryders will be driving around the Klang Valley, giving away goodie bags and stations’ merchandises.
