93.5 RED FM is back with its flagship initiative ‘RED FM ka Thappa’, a celebration that brings cities across India together to vote for their iconic and favorite foods joints, places, services and establishments. RED FM is honoring the most voted and iconic places of the city with a ‘best of best’ stamp i.e. ‘Thappa’. Running in 33 cities across 14 states, the activity began on 01 June, 2019.
During the 4-week long campaign, categories with multiple participants from each category will be featured. Listeners from each city will be asked to cast a vote to their favorite participant, and RED FM RJs in respective cities will pick the most voted establishments and authenticate it with ‘Red FM ka Thappa’ in true Bajaate Raho style. Since the initiative celebrates the best of best which is truly local in each of the cities, RED FM has named it the ‘Pakka Local Festival.’
The campaign runs simultaneously across 33 cities that include Indore, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Dehradun, Lucknow, Kanpur, Varanasi, Allahabad, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Bhubaneswar, Siliguri, Asansol, Guwahati, Patna, Jamshedpur, Ahmadabad, Surat, Baroda, Rajkot, Pune, Nagpur, Nasik, Aurangabad, Jammu and Srinagar, Bangalore, Mangalore, Gulbarga, Mysore and Hubli.
Red FM COO Nisha Narayanan said, “RED FM recognizes the fact the people in the respective cities love what belongs to their city and is authentically local.
“Through ‘RED FM Ka Thappa’ we give them a chance to show their love for their favorite food joint, establishment or service by voting for them and making them a winner.
“Year on year growth of the IP has made us believe that city connects works and RED as a brand will support what is local.”
