Straight Line News Network

Srinagar, Oct 31: With erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir reorganised as two new Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, radio stations too have been renamed.

Radio Station situated in Jammu is renamed as the All India Radio, Jammu. While stations in Srinagar and Leh have also been renamed as the All India Radio, Srinagar and All India Radio Leh, respectively. They have, however, been a part of the AIR since the 1950s.

Radio Kashmir was established on July 1, 1948, when Sheikh Abdullah, then the Prime Minister of Kashmir, inaugurated the Radio Kashmir Srinagar station near the Tourist Reception Centre in Srinagar. J.N. Zutshi was the first Director-General of Radio Kashmir. Radio Kashmir Srinagar became most popular when Pushkar Bhan’s Zoon Dab was aired for more than nineteen years from the Radio Kashmir station.
