Anil Srivatsa- Radiowalla-Creating Your Own Radio Station


In this video, i speak with Anil Srivatsa, who has had an amazing career in the media industry, went on to become the CEO of IPL team KingsXI Punjab at the behest of Lalit Modi, resigned, and now evangelizes the democratization of radio and is looking to bring back his talkshows. An amazingly multifaceted personality and extremely articulate, Anil talks about his current passion of evangelising radio stations for different businesses and talks about Radiowalla and Spotradio in this video.

Anil hosted the largest syndicated South Asian radio show in the US 'Anil Ki Awaaz', which earned him a place in the Limca Book of Records, before he moved to India three years ago. He held the position of executive vice-president of ImaginAsian Entertainment Inc, a US-based entertainment company before taking over as Radio Today COO. At Meow, Anil hosted the late night talk show Between The Sheets, which talked about the softer side of a woman - her sexuality, sensuality and the various problems she faces. Srivatsa dubbed it 'talk therapy'.

During his 17 years in the US, Srivatsa also served as CEO (USA) and Head of International Marketing Operations at RTV UK, where he successfully launched several South Asian networks in Europe and the Middle East. Prior to his stint at RTV UK, Srivatsa was Director of Cricket and South Asian Programming at Kelly Broadcasting, where he oversaw the creation and development of the Cricket Channel. He is the pioneer of internet radio as well.

Anil has the @awaaz twitter handle.
