In 2015, Fever FM took the Fever brand experience to Chennai with the first acquisition of a station – Aaha 91.9 FM. Soon, it became Chennai’s Bollywood heartbeat with the tagline ‘Idhu Bollywoodin Superstar’.
This year, the station decided to pay a mega tribute to the missile man, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, on his birthday. RJ Sano embarked on a journey to cover the life of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and started from the house where he was born in Rameshwaram. The journey was flagged off by his brother, his niece and his grandson and culminated on his birthday, October 15, at Rashtrapati Bhawan.
During her journey, RJ Sano covered ISRO in Trivandrum where he worked, met his classmate at Ramanathapuram and his military assistant, Chellappa at Tirunelveli. She also met Sampath Kumar, Dr Kalam’s roommate at St. Joseph college at Coimbatore, his granddaughter Nagoor Roja at Bangalore and Sathya CR, former Director of Vikram Sarabhai Space Research Centre.
This 10-day journey on air and on digital ended at Rashtrapati Bhawan where she was with Dr Kalam’s family and former President Dr Pranab Mukherjee.
Harshad Jain, CEO, Radio and Entertainment, HT Media Ltd., said, “We are glad that listeners in Chennai have accepted us with open arms and showered us with their love and loyalty. Fever 91.9 FM is the destination station in Chennai with Bollywood, innovative content and entertainment as key pegs. Rameshwaram to Rashtrapati Bhavan with RJ Sano affirms our strong commitment to unique content and innovation. Moreover, it is our tribute to a real hero of Chennai and India – Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.”
