Radio emerges as Kashmir's hero post floods

Srinagar, Feb 06 (ANI): Radio has emerged as the ultimate choice of mass media for the people of Jammu and Kashmir in the aftermath of the floods that wrecked havoc in September last year. Hundreds of people were killed and thousands of villages were devastated by the worst flooding in decades in the Kashmir valley last year. Roads in Srinagar were transformed into stagnant canals strewn with wreckage, trash and dead animals. When all channels of communication including phone lines and other mass media networks like the state owned television channel Doordarshan were down, it was FM services of state owned station 'Radio Kashmir' which kept the people up to date with the latest happenings and also acted as a platform where their grievances were highlighted. As a result of this a lot of people in the state still prefer to listen to radio over other mediums of mass communication like television and newspapers. Feb 6, 2015
