Lyca Media CEO, Raj Baddhan, has been honoured with an Entrepreneur of the Year award by Galaxy Shows at a London event.
Baddhan, who runs Lyca Media’s business consisting of Lyca Radio, Lyca Gold and Time FM, also broadcasts the ‘Drivetime’ show on Lyca Radio.
Baddhan was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Pankkaj Sodha for the successful launch of the UK’s first retro Asian music station, Lyca Gold. Sodha handed the award to Baddhan at his event, Bollywood Idol on Sunday night. Sodha also congratulated Baddhan for his major achievements whilst running the Lyca Media business.
Baddhan said, “Since my designation as CEO here at Lyca Media, not only me but my entire team have worked tirelessly to make cohesive changes and developments to revolutionise the network. With gratitude and pride, last night I was bestowed with an award for Entrepreneur of the Year, with particular recognition of my recent endeavours for Lyca Gold, the UK’s very first retro Asian Radio station.
Our network has not only achieved a sustained revenue growth over recent months, but also attracted many new, high profile and mainstream clients within both the European, and Ethnic division. Lyca Media has also forged several long lasting, fruitful partnerships with an array of high profile Bollywood artists whom have recently performed in the UK, in addition to various sponsorship campaigns on mainstream Asian television. Furthermore, our efforts in developing Lyca Gold as a brand were clearly triumphant in fulfilling a gap within the marketplace, enabling the station to achieve it’s highest ever average listening hours within the first quarter of it’s commencement.
Not only from myself, but also on behalf of my dedicated team, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Pankkaj Sodha from Galaxy Shows for presenting me with such an esteemed accolade, in addition to organising the exhilarating Bollywood Idol event which took place last night. There are many more exciting things on the horizon for Lyca Media over the coming months, so watch this space!”
Lyca Gold launched in London in September 2021 and has proven a grand success with average listening hours at a record high in its first official ratings by RAJAR.
