Mr. Sunil Kumaran, Country Head - Product, Marketing & THWINK BIG, BIG FM said, “Yaadon ka Idiot Box with Neelesh Misra has been a marquee property which has always topped the list of listeners and advertisers. The show’s storytelling format clubbed with Neelesh’s unique style not only makes the show engaging but is well received in our markets. With our conscious effort to provide entertainment with a purpose, the show shall provide listeners with a new experience that comes with the modern-day scenarios and churn out relatable stories on the show. With various fresh elements, the show is going to be a treat for our listeners across the country.”
On the launch of Season 6, Radio host and Storyteller Neelesh Misra said, “The format of the show has been our biggest strength and will keep the essence of the show intact despite adding new elements to it. The stories in season 6 will be around relationships in everyday India, but there will be an effort to bring social consciousness which speak about taboo prevalent in society today. I strongly feel that communicators have a huge social responsibility and being in this profession, we are trying to use this power responsibly without objectifying people or being preachy. The stories will remain entertaining and will have the same soul but will be a few notches higher from its earlier seasons. Our stories will tell listeners how to see the world from another person’s point of view and encourage empathy towards each other.”
The award-winning show which was introduced in 2011 makes listeners nostalgic by connecting them with their experiences in their own personal life. This new season will definitely give the listeners a refreshing perspective through Neelesh’s beautiful narration and story-telling skills.
