Radio was the first digital media platform to exchange vocal information. Since its inception, Radio has helped many issues and people get viral. It was first used by military and then got into entertainment. Though it was invented for military purpose, Radio is best known for entertainment. Radio Entertainment is one of the biggest industries in India and it’s getting bigger day by day.
