Valliappa Foundation’s Sona FM set to make a difference in the Salem community
On November 21, Salem region’s very own community radio, Sona FM 89.6 broadcasted for the first time. This is being hailed as being one of the Valliappa Foundation’s great gifts to the Tamil community in the Salem region.
Sona FM’s vital importance to the local community at Salem is at many levels. For one, people living in cities have hoards of radio stations to choose from for infotainment but those in smaller towns and villages don’t have much.
Secondly, Sona FM has been conceived in a way that the local community can readily access information relevant and useful for them locally like weather, healthcare, government schemes, education, & many more.
Thirdly, the local talent seems to have gained an immensely useful platform for showcasing. If someone believes he/she has a unique skill, Sona FM will readily broadcast his/her performance if it is good enough.
Sona FM will broadcast live every day from 10 am to 12 pm. The repeat telecasts will take place at 4 pm and 8 pm on the same day.
