London’s popular Asian radio stations, Lyca Radio and Lyca Gold are rejoicing after a hugely successful Navratri and Diwali 2023 period. The stations known for their key connect with South Asian audiences, continued to play a pivotal role in the community with thousands of attendees at each event.
Lyca Group, the UK’s No.1 Asian radio network, boasted of big sponsorship deals with leading brands like Tilda Rice, Tata Sampann Masala and Star Tours.
The Navratri period led by the team’s Alka Shah, saw the stations attend 11 events across Greater London. Lyca Radio and Lyca Gold presenters linked back to the radio stations with live updates, as well as giveaway prizes on stage to attendees at each event. Tilda Rice and Star Tours handed out hundreds of pounds of vouchers, while Jaimin Snacks jumped on board to giveaway huge gift hampers. The brands also had visibility on-ground with banners and special promotions.
On the radio, Tilda Rice, Tata Sampann Masala and Star Tours had regular messages being broadcast giving meanings of each day over the entire Navratri and Diwali period. The special messages were also relayed on the Lyca Radio and Lyca Gold social media network.
Furthermore, Lyca Radio broadcast a special 60-minute ‘Navratri Hour’ on Lyca Radio everyday between 7pm and 8pm and at 9am until 10am on Lyca Gold.
During Diwali, the station also ran a campaign with Shana Paratha, with a ‘Shana-Tastic’ track to celebrate the festive season being played every hour.
