Sooriyan FM, a brand of the Asia Broadcasting Corporation Private Ltd., a member of Rayynor Silva Holdings, celebrates its 15th year in the Sri Lankan radio industry. The number one Tamil station in Sri Lanka, Sooriyan FM, commemorated their anniversary celebrations with a unique helicopter gift promotion in the North, East and the Nuwara Eliya District where the station’s most ardent listeners are. The station showed their appreciation to their supportive listeners across these areas as they were pleasantly surprised when the helicopters distributed electronics and other such valuable gifts in a way they had never seen before. Speaking of the stations achievement Asia Broadcasting Corporation Chairman Rayynor Silva said: “Since we are known for our trendsetting standards we believed that we had to go above and beyond for this anniversary. The helicopter promotion was the first time a Tamil radio station had ever done a promotion like this in Sri Lanka and even the world.” The promotional drop included gifts vouchers ranging from LED TVs, fridges, mobile phones, cash prizes, washing machines, laptops, and cameras to name a few. The response to the promotion was exceptional, with listeners showing their excitement by flooding social media forums such as Facebook and Twitter with their comments. Sooriyan FM, the first private Tamil radio channel in Sri Lanka which launched 15 years ago, is the market leader and the trend setter in Tamil radio. Its innovative programming strategy and the up-to-date news reporting has made Sooriyan FM the epitome in Tamil broadcasting. Tune in to Sooriyan on FM 103.6 and 103.4 for more updates and promotions.
