New Delhi: A new book celebrates the lives of 14 popular radio presenters in India - from the legendary Ameen Sayani to present-day RJs – who have been entertaining us via the airwaves.
"Let's Talk On Air: Conversations with Radio Presenters" by Rakesh Anand Bakshi features interviews and career advice from these presenters. It also serves as a comprehensive guide on radio-presenting in India.
Besides Sayani, among those RJs featured in the book are Yunus Khan, Rohini, Mamta Singh, Sayema, Hrishikay Kannan, Anuraag 'picture' Pandey and Anmol.
"This book can help shed light on intricacies of radio as a medium and the RJs behind the microphones, connect fans to their favourite RJs and, eventually attract more talent to be part of the industry," says Kartik Kalla, chief creative officer at Radio City.
Indira Rangarajan, national programming head at Second Frequencies - Mirchi Love, Radio Mirchi, says a book on RJs and their journey was long overdue. "I am so glad it's out at a time when the profession is exploding."
The book, published by Penguin Random House, will be launched on World Radio Day on February 13 in Mumbai.
