New Delhi : The most awarded and one of the largest radio networks in the country, RED FM has come out with another exciting concept of having a humanoid robot as a radio jockey. RJ Rashmi who is world’s first ever Hindi speaking robot will be seen hosting a show on Red FM.
93.5 RED FM never fails to surprise its listeners through the most interesting content formats and disruptive programming. The show #AskRashmi went on-air on the 3rd December for the first time. As a part of this concept, Robot Rashmi hosts a show with RJ Raunac aka Baua in the morning from 10 AM to 11 AM and ‘Dilli ke kadak launde’ RJ Kisna and Ashish in the evening 5 PM to 6 PM.
During the show ‘Ask Rashmi’, the robot interacts with the callers and responds to their questions. These conversations vary between a plethora of topics like politics, environment, road safety with an understanding of human emotions.
On this first ever concept for the radio industry, Ms. Nisha Narayanan, COO, RED FM said, “Red FM is always working towards creating exciting content which also has the new age spark to it.
