Mumbai : One of India’s brilliant radio jockeys returned to mainstream radio this week. Hrishikesh Kannan the host of 94.3 Radio One’s weekend show will now be hosting Radio One’s daily morning slot in Mumbai which goes on air every Monday to Friday between 7am-11am.
It’s been a roller coaster ride for the jock hosting radio shows across FM stations. Hrishi K who had given up daily mainstream radio to pursue a voice over career is glad to be back to the medium he feels extremely connected to.
Hrishi.K has won India’s oldest & most prestigious radio award, the RAPA (Radio And Television Practitioners Association) in 2009 for his show on Radio One which was nominated in the`Best Radio Show- Long Format’ category. Furthermore the Sony network’s June monthly movie line up promotion spot/TV commercial won him the Promax Award for the best promo for the year 2008-2009.
Says Hrishi K, “There was something missing…a tug at the heart and a sense of irritability asking myself that vital question; why am I not doing more radio?” And finally to the delight of all Hrishi.K fans he gave into that inner voice!
Bavesh Janavlekar, Station Head Mumbai commented, “94.3 Radio One is very happy to have Hrishi K, a radio veteran hosting the morning show. We were inundated with requests from his fans who wanted to hear him more often than just on weekends who I’m sure will be pleasantly surprised with the new change – with this change we promise to deliver maximum music to our listeners”
“Hrishi K brings a lot of experience with him. This is the kind of baggage we don’t mind. We took this decision keeping in mind the connect that Hrishi shares with his listeners. We hope listeners continue to love the station and support us the way they have done until now. If standing out in a crowd is the need of the hour, we surely don’t have to try too hard.” says Rishi Kishnani, Programming Director Mumbai
7-11 am Monday to Friday. Feel the pulse of radio through the abilities of a man who understands and breathes the medium better than any other contemporary jock.
