Why Online Radio is Better than TV, YouTube or a News paper?
- You can Listen to a Radio all though you may be busy doing any work. Example: Reading, eating, jogging, running, during workout, traveling, sleeping, working & more. Moreover you can Listen to our Education Radios & even appear for your competitive exams- Radio MPSC GURU & Radio Espalier. Apart, most importantly, a Radio is an completely unpredictable media. It raises suspense on Whats Coming Up! That is the reason which makes it very unique. Most amazingly just imagine while your driving, you hear some very interesting content on knowledge like; ” How Google came into existence, what’s the technology behind touch screens, etc.” Moreover you can do everything & you can hear interesting facts, News, etc, still without disturbing your workflow. The same content may be available on TV or YouTube Channel but you have to spend your time on that. It will also interrupt your work in hand. Now, It is very clear that TV, as well as YouTube Channel both, are a visual medium and in any visual medium, you have to engage your eyes, mind & your self to grab information from it. On the contrary a Radio is the only medium where you at no extra effort can grasp all the information just by Listening. It is also a very primitive medium in the world of technology by which you can spread your knowledge, information with your Listeners worlwide..
