93.5 Red FM under its Phase III expansion has launched two more stations in Patna and Surat. After launching in Jodhpur, Chandigarh and Amritsar, 93.5 Red FM is now strengthening its presence in other tier II markets.
In these markets, Red FM will programme a CHR (contemporary hit radio) station for the city that will play hits from all musical genres, including Bollywood, Punjabi and other formats. The station is all set to bring new and entertaining content to the listeners. As a brand, Red FMâ€™s primary focus will be to localise the content keeping in mind the festivities and culture of the people.
Speaking about expanding 93.5 Red FMâ€™s frequencies, Nisha Narayanan, COO, Red FM said, â€œThe Red FM team is very excited with this new market launch which will have fresh and new RJ voices. Under the Phase III expansion, both Patna and Surat were the cities which were slotted. These cities are very popular for the unique cultures and our aim is to capitalise on this by localising the content. We hope for a great launch of Indiaâ€™s largest radio network 93.5 Red FM in both these cities. Bajaate Raho!â€™â€™
