Meenakshi Bhojwani

Radio Jockey
Radio happened just by chance to RJMeenakshi, when she was all of 8 years. She had no professional training in Radio and further amusing was the fact that she even did not know what a Radio Jockey did. She started her journey with a late night romantic show which broke all records of even all prime time shows. Her task was very tedious as she had to bring all the listeners who were glued to her on the competition radio station, which she very ably did. After being labelled the “night queen” doing so many night shows across different radio stations, she took the biggest risk of leaving the night show for a bigger challenge...that was taking up the “Breakfast Show”. Very recently, she won the “sounds of India” contest and was the first non-metro radio personality to represent India in the International Radio Festival becoming the No.1 RJ in India where she performed her show “Salaam Chandigarh “ live in Zurich and which was broadcast to 47 countries.
