Radio network Big FM is bringing back the renewed edition of 'Suron Ki Nau Deviyan'. It will start from 21 September and conclude on 29 September.
Ranjit Phatak, who was leading the creative and strategic vision of MTV programming at Viacom18, will now lead the programming for Red FM network based out of Mumbai.
Big FM has appointed Publicis as their creative agency.
Deccan Chronicle Holdings, which publishes Deccan Chronicle, Financial Chronicle, The Asian Age and Telugu daily Andhra Bhoomi, will have somebody in charge to propose turnaround measures of the beleaguered company.
MIB has taken action against two private FM radio broadcasters for violating the GOPA and the programme and advertising codes of All India Radio.
The IRS 2013 report, which attracted harsh criticism from the print media companies, will continue to be in abeyance till the completion of a revalidation and audit of the field work. The decision was taken by the MRUC board and the managing committee of the RSCI.
Amid stiff opposition from print media companies, the Readership Studies Council of India (RSCI) has decided to suspend the new Indian Readership Survey (IRS) data, which was released on 28 January.
The Association of Indian Magazines has sent a letter to the MRUC, asking it to ‘immediately withdraw IRS 2013 findings’. Such ‘faulty’ reporting of readership numbers can have ‘extremely damaging impact’ on business, says AIM.
While calls for a correction in the data have become louder, MRUC has stubbornly defended its new format and methodology. The new IRS helps to tap into new communities and understand demographics for a larger India, MRUC says.
The fight between the print publishers and the MRUC has taken an ugly turn. Within an hour after being snubbed by the MRUC, INS issues an advisory to all its member publications, urging them to reject IRS data and take steps for individual restitution.
