Radio India is now in media collaboration with The Vancouver Desi (a unit of the Vancouver Province). Now Radio India listeners can stay more updated by accessing Vancouver Desi’s news feeds on Radio’s website as well as the Vancouver Desi’s readers can listen live stream from Radio India on Vancouver Desi’s website.
‘Our combined reach in the South Asian community is unparalleled in Canadian media,’ said Fabian Dawson deputy editor of The Province and editor of Vancouver Desi.
Maninder Gill, managing director Radio India said this media collaboration between two media giants will now provide a wider podium to the South Asian community and will make the voice of the community stronger.
Radio India has more than 180,000 listeners across Canada and Desi has had had more than 150,000 hits in the last 30 days.
With a team of very motivated and dedicated hosts Radio India provides a wide range of on air programmes. Vancouver Desi’s readers can now listen and participate in radio’s informative talk shows as well as musical programmes with ten daily news updates.
More than 1.373 million South Asians live in Canada with about 25 per cent living in the Greater Vancouver area and this type of media collaboration in Canadian history was not only a public appeal but also a fact of time.
