Virality – The most common term used for successful content. Content has been one of the powerful stakeholders in building a brand.Light hearted or humorous content is one of the most liked forms of content. Comedy groups like AIB and comedians like Kanan Gill in particular have risen to fame because of such content and digital social media platforms.

In conversation with the Pitch team, Rajat Uppal, National Marketing Head, Redfm, comments how Redfm keeps innovating.
‘This is the second season of Musicom, and as the name suggests, it is a fusion of music and comedy. Comedy has become huge in last four years and music has been there forever. Last year was the first time we started with a multi city tour and a combined curated event. That’s the next step forward for Redfm as Red Live. We will promote curated shows rather than single artist shows.’
Talking more about the growth of content on Radio, Rajat said, ‘We never work on any event on an isolated basis. It is our aim to have the on-ground showsprovide content for Radio. If we look at KananGill or even some of the other artists we worked with earlier in the year, they have provided content for the youth, which we use for radio as well.’

Audiences enjoy comedy and the rise of the humor industry in India has been swift and surprising. It is hard to predict where it will be in next few years or when it will slow down as it is all very new. If you look at the last six – seven years we have impressive growth.’
