Toluna India findings for Tier II & III markets
Tier II & III markets are showing some enlightening trends for the Radio medium, according to our recent study across 30 Tier II & III markets, with a sample base of over 1200+ respondents. The detailed interviews were conducted among FM radio listeners belonging to 18 – 50 years, who are a part of the Toluna panel across genders, socioeconomic classes and employment status. The data collection was conducted between 19th December 2022 and 2nd January 2023. We covered markets in North and West, including Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Indore, Chandigarh, Nagpur, Bhopal, Surat, Ludhiana, Udaipur, and Aurangabad, amongst others.
The study highlights that FM listenership is quite high in these markets, as 80% of the respondents claim they listen to Radio. The listenership is higher amongst working professionals, where 9 out of 10 consume it. Another big revelation from the study is 33% of radio listeners ranked FM Radio as the most preferred medium for daily entertainment, followed by video/music streaming apps.
According to the online survey done by Toluna, a leading technology driven market research company that delivers real-time insights, highlights the following: -
1. 74% of radio listeners tune in more than three days every week. Radio listening is a part of a daily routine for around 1 out of every 4 in the decision-maker group.
2. 7 out of 10 radio listeners tune in to Radio for between 30 minutes to 2 hours every day.
3. Another important highlight 6 out 10 people consume Radio at Home
Adding to the insights, Dixit Chanana, Country Director, Toluna India, says “Our study on radio listenership in tier II and III shows some interesting data points. 33% of radio listeners ranked FM Radio as the most preferred medium of daily entertainment. This is consistent with the study that we did in 2020. Apart from consumption on the go, more than 60% consume radio at home. The way people consume Radio in these markets is amazing, and I am sure the Radio fraternity will be very happy to see such kind of findings.”

The One Club announces final 2022 Global Creative Rankings
Leo Burnett Chicago Maintains Top Spot In Final 2022 Global Creative Rankings
The industry’s only creative ranking to combine scores from leading global,regional and local awards shows offers a broad global benchmark for creative excellence.
With the culmination of the year’s industry awards marked by last week’s announcement of 2022 ONE Asia Creative Awards winners, Leo Burnett Chicago maintained its top spot in the Global Creative Rankings 2022, which incorporates results from all of The One Club for Creativity’s leading global, regional and local awards shows.
The global benchmark report is a complete ranking of agencies, brands and individuals based on points earned from their winning entries in The One Show 2022, ADC 101st Annual Awards, Type Directors Club TDC68/25TDC competitions, ONE Asia 2022, and The One Club Denver, San Diego, and Miami chapter awards programs. In addition to the global list, rankings for specific regions and countries can be viewed by using dropdown menus.
Leo Burnett Chicago’s stellar performance is largely based on wins for “The Lost Class” on behalf of Change the Ref.

Agency participation in the regional and local shows helps networks and holding companies with their global rankings. This was illustrated in 2022 in the strong showing in the just-announced ONE Asia Creative Awards by Ogilvy offices in Bangkok, Gurugram, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo, which helped propel the brand to the top agency network spot in the final 2022 ranking, and moved WPP from third place to first for holding companies.

A tragedy that shook the nation to its core, the serial blasts across various cities in India that took place during the early 00’s were one of the most horrific terror strikes India has ever endured. The clever, cutting-edge investigations conducted by the heroic Mumbai police and the Indian Intelligence Bureau infiltrated the tactical operations of the masterminds behind the gruesome terror acts – the Indian Mujahideen group. Showcasing the step-by-step journey of arresting the dangerous convicts who caused havoc across the nation, Warner Bros. Discovery announces a new investigative special, ‘Hunt For The Indian Mujahideen’. The new original, premiering on 19th January on discovery+, essays the first-person narrative of the investigating officers. As the story progresses, viewers will unravel the investigation, leading them to the story behind one of the most horrifying homegrown terrorist networks.
Sai Abishek, Head of Factual & Lifestyle Cluster, South Asia, Warner Bros. Discovery. said, “Warner Bros. Discovery has always pioneered dynamic stories with dramatic value that resonate with audiences across the country. The Indian Mujahideen group left a devastating effect with its gruesome activities.

The storyline will captivate the audiences as the backstory surrounding true events unfolds upon them.”
Speaking of his experience helming the series, Zulfakar Sadriwala (Xulfee), director, Hunt For The Indian Mujahideen, said, “The most challenging yet enriching experience as a filmmaker was to set a seamless narrative of the investigation without making it too complicated for the viewers.”
Deepak Dhar, Founder & CEO, Banijay Asia said,"We, at Banijay Asia, are always experimenting with concepts and formats, and this is yet another investigative documentary for us. Audience demand for real life stories is continuing to grow and with Hunt for The Indian Mujahideen, we're fulfilling this need gap.
