Prashant Panday, MD and CEO of ENIL, said: “We’ve been leaders in FM radio in India for more than 20 years and now we are making all our radio stations and a lot more audio content available to our listeners outside the country. The app offers brands and marketers across geographies the opportunity to connect with wealthy NRI audiences in the US, Qatar, Bahrain, and UAE.”
