Those of us who grew up listening to only one, but rather amazing radio broadcaster – the All India Radio – have very fond memories of its programs.  Who can forget Vividh Bharati and its programs?  Now, all that from All India Radio is coming to Alexa.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore launched AIR’s streaming services on Alexa in New Delhi on Sept 28.

Through this device, AIR will get an additional platform for global and domestic audiences and will cover all the shadow areas of the terrestrial broadcasting in the regional headquarters and metro cities in particular.  17 channels of All India Radio including Vividh Bharati, FM Gold, FM Rainbow and Northeastern Services are being live streamed on Alexa.

A platform that is used by none other than the Prime Minister himself for “Mann ki Baat” is now evolving into the modern world and growing with times.

It is indeed heartening to note that this government is taking institutions which were hitherto considered archaic to the next level by infusing new technologies.
