The sector is rapidly evolving and has a tremendous untapped potential stored in it. The Indian Media and Entertainment industry stood at Rs. 43,700 crores in the year 2009 and is expected to grow at an annual rate of 19% till the year 2010 The Indian Media and Entertainment industry can be categorized as follows:    Film Entertainment    Television    Music    Radio    Print RADIO INDUSTRY Introduction:   Radio has made a comeback in the lifestyles of Indians. Radio has the reputation of being the   oldest and the cheapest medium of entertainment in India. The radio industry has been completely reshaped by the various private players that entered the sector after the government allowed foreign investment into the segment and opened the licenses to the private players. The Indian government has already given 338 licenses for FM radio channels in 91 big and small towns and cities. The current size of the radio market in India is Rs. 300 crores and is expected to achieve the highest growth rate of 32% in coming years. Infact, in its new avatar-fm- radio is all set to become the hippest, coolest and most with -it medium. FM radio is a new entity altogether and has to deal with new market dynamics. Media owners dealing with new markets will virtually have to draw up their strategies as they go along, create programming that is new, innovative and grab away eyeballs from TV sets and make them tune into their radio sets. PESTEL ANALYSIS There are many factors in the macro-environment that will effect the decisions of the manager of any organization. Tax changes, new laws, trade barriers, demographic change and government policy changes are all examples of macro change. To help analyze these factors managers can categories them using the PESTEL model. This classification distinguishes between: Political factors: For radio industry political factors are:    To enter in the industry, high time entry fee has to be given.     Up to 20 per cent FDI is allowed in Radio Industry subject to an approval from Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) in addition to the guidelines notified by Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.      Up to 15% annual hike in the license fee.    Only 10 year of license is valid. Economic factors: These include interest rates, taxation changes, economic growth, inflation and exchange rates. As you will see throughout the “ Foundations of Economics ”  book economic change can have a major impact on a firm’ s behaviour. For radio industry economic factors are:    RJs are mainly attracted by package that has been offered to them by competitors.    The employees of radio industry are mainly attracted by package that has been offered to them by competitors. Social factors: Changes in social trends can impa ct on the demand for a firm’ s products and the availability and willingness of individuals to work. In the UK, for example, the population has been ageing. This has increased the costs for firms who are committed to pension payments for their employees  because their staff is living longer. It also means some firms such as Ads have started to recruit older employees to tap into this growing labour pool. The ageing population also has impact on demand: for example, demand for sheltered accommodation and medicines have increased whereas demand for toys is falling. For radio industry social factors are:    Demographic factors  –   there are different people with different age group.    People have different likings with other people.    TV is a family medium, while radio is a personal medium for entertainment. Technological factors:  New technologies create new products and new processes. MP3 players, computer games, online gambling and high definition TVs are all new markets created by technological advances. Online shopping, bar coding and computer aided design are all improvements to the way we do business as a result of better technology. Technology can reduce costs, improve quality and lead to innovation. These developments can benefit consumers as well as the organisations providing the  products.
