In its 50 years of journey, All India Radio Leh has become the household name in Ladakh.
News readers, anchors and announcers look so familiar to the listeners.
Especially, when there was no other medium in Ladakh except All India Radio, the radio family is everyone’s extended family.
On the occasion of AIR Leh Golden Jubilee on 25th of this month, AIR correspondent has filed this report:
Tsewang Nurboo Shinkan has retired as Senior Announcer from All India Radio, Leh.
He is one of the dedicated and committed to his duties and travelled the length and breadth of Ladakh region between 1970 and 90s, when villages and hamlets hardly have any roads.
With old model recorders, he walked and recorded several unknown artisans and artists brought them to the fore.
Be it Serchu on Manali road or be it Pobrang on the banks of Pangong Tso, listeners remember his name and contribution for their upliftment for better life, even today.
As an incharge for Rural programmes Tsewang Nurboo Shinkan touched the remotest villages and reached wherever the Radio signal could reach.
Nurbu shares his experience
To its true spirit Bahujan Hitay, Bahujan Sukhay…AIR works for the society in general and AIR Leh in particular.
