Radio brings along nostalgia of old days, cheap thrills of hearing your favourite song play or even hear your name play out. We cherish the same emotion, here at I@ISB – one event, one song, one show at a time.
We, Class of 2019, started our Radio journey with an anti-FOMO Mission, and thus, to empower every individual of the community, we named it I@ISB. Ever since it has been a roller coaster ride. The Radio club is functional at both our campuses.
We started playing our favourite tunes on the radio. Our exam playlists have been well appreciated by the ISB Junta. Soon, we started covering the speaker sessions conducted by the various clubs. We believe speaker sessions are essential and thus if people listen to it on the radio, they will understand the value and prefer attending the next session(s).
Every week, barring the exam weeks, we host an event called ‘Campus Samachaar’ where we have ISB folks speak their heart out about key highlights of their week. We also host faculty interviews in our segment ‘Humans of ISB’ wherein one of our RJ tries to explore facts about the faculty, which we don’t find in a classroom. We also have a segment ‘Let’s talk’ where we talk about some of the big-ticket events: Pride Parade, Aikya, ISL, Advaita, etc.
We have now started a segment called ‘ISB Bakra’ with our very own GSB President Nitya Samuel. We also have ‘Fireside Chat Session’, a speaker series with prominent faculty/ business leaders/ distinguished personalities in their field. Along with the show host Mohit Ambawani, who was instrumental in interviews at ILS summit at Mohali, we have a brief 20-30 minutes session on their life journey, their article analysis and some knowledge sharing session for the ISB community. An exclusive show by Radio Club, the event has seen interests from not only cohort of PGP but also with faculty and staff at ISB.
‘In Conversation with’, a program made for and by the PGP cohort on their campus life, their journey before and in ISB, their plans post ISB and the general happenings on the campus. Starting with GSB at initial guests, the program is planned to bring many other cohorts on the Radio to speak upon their views regarding the current state of affairs and the global issues along with everyday mundanity.
On October 10, 2018, Professor Ramabhadran S. Thirumalai, Senior Associate Dean, Academic Programmes officially launched the Radio app.
The Radio app helps us in the following three ways:
- Data analytics: Helps us track the subscribers; their numbers and average time spent
- Convenience to users: An app is far better than copy-pasting a link
- Reduce spams: Notifications will help us target our listeners about our events
We are in the final stage of testing, and the app will be released very soon for both Android and iOS.
