Indore is a city with a population of around two million,
located mid-way between Mumbai and New Delhi. The
city is famous for the Rajwada Palace and the Lal Baag
Palace that date back to the 19th century Holdar dynasty.
Today, the city is a vibrant modern metropolis that also
has a growing number of radio stations. MYFM 94.3 is
one of the city’s stations and that’s where
– better known to her audience as RJ Viny – works.
Viny started her radio career at the age of 22 after being
selected during an audition process from hundreds of
applicants. She started to host a night time show in
Jabalpur, moving to MYFM 94.3 in 2011 as the host and
producer of the breakfast show.
She’s a popular figure and is often seen out and about
across Indore, hosting outside broadcasts for the station.
Her engaging personality means that local celebrities are
keen to appear on her shows, as are leading politicians
and government officials who want to be heard on some
of Indore’s most popular radio programmes.
Viny’s passions – apart from music – are her family and
friends, and Hindi movies. Then there’s travel. Viny’s
dream is to travel to far off, unusual destinations and to
have interesting conversations with total strangers even
without knowing their language!
Our judges praised Viny’s clear and incisive presentation
on MYFM 94.3, and her ability to engage her audience
on a wide range of subjects – something that’s
more common with talk radio presenters, not music
presenters. Her enthusiasm for radio shines through and
she has an innate ability to connect with her guests, as
well as to relate to her audience.
