Big FM RJ paraglides into record books

Thursday 23 May, 2019


Indian network Big FM has entered the Asia Book of Records for successfully going 'Live from Sky with RJ Jyonita'.

RJ Jyonita, the afternoon presenter at the network’s Pune station, hosted a live one-hour show while paragliding 2000 Feet above the ground and 3,500 Ft above sea level.

She attempted the record on Monday at Kamshet, near Pavana Lake.

She was connected to studio Telcos system via a call through the uninterrupted Vodafone network which went live in real time. 

RJ Jyonita said: "I was excited to do this, as no one has ever done this before. I try to do different things and approached my team with this idea, who liked it instantly and immediately approved it. I was eagerly looking forward to this and set a record which is first of its kind." 

 Speaking on the title of the record - ‘First RJ Live Show Hosted From The Sky’, Asia Book of Records said: "Radio jockeying is mostly done in closed studios with access to various tools to help connect with listeners. We have registered various RJ Marathon records, but this unique concept of RJ Live show from the sky was quite appealing. The claimant RJ Jyonita along with the Big FM team were given detailed guidelines for the attempt and the minimum criterion laid was – 'RJ live show to be hosted at approx 1000 feet above the sea level and for around 1-hour duration that too successfully and smoothly without any technical breaks or interruptions'. The record is now successfully registered under the category 'Industry and Business' in the Asia Book of Records."
