Our vision is to increase radio audience to the fullest and combat the penetration of cable television by creating change in the community through our community programmes which are beneficial for them.</p>

<p>Community Radio was brought to Kalpakkam under the Atomic Energy Education Society (AEES),which runs all the schools in the Atomic Energy townships around the country. The aim was to provide quality programmes to the community living around Kalpakkam.

<p>Signature Programmes: GramamPoovom, Nalamthana ,VelaiVaippuThagavalgal Community Participation: After a drive where sun filters were distributed, the radio station conducted four hours of live programmes clarifying questions about it asked by the community. The radio station has also conducted a drive for local fishermen on sea weed, which is important for the community&rsquo;s livelihood. Innovations in Format: As a part of content sharing, Kalpakkam Community Radio has partnered with Employment News with the MOIB to translate and provide employment news information in the local language. The content created is verified and also approved by the MOIB. We&rsquo;ve also made new transmission software in which all the local RJs are trained in.</p>

<p>Funding and Partnerships The station was started as a part of a neighbourhood welfare development activity at Kalpakkam and sufficient funds have been earmarked for operation and maintenance of KCRS. The operations and maintenance of KCRS are met as part of the neighbourhood welfare development scheme.</p>

<p>The recent launch of Employment News in the local language created a big impact in the community. This turned out to be a viable solution to ensure employment news information reached the grass roots and help people in the community choose and plan their careers accordingly.</p>
