Thursday 30 March, 2017


Indian network Red FM’s Mumbai breakfast host Malishka Mendosa, popularly known as RJ Malishka, has been named as one of Impact's 50 Most Influential Women in Media, Marketing and Advertising 2017 in India.  

The list is an endeavour to acknowledge the achievements of women who have not just made significant contributions in the media domain and broken through the proverbial glass ceiling, but have also played a crucial role in changing the way the industry is perceived today.

Her show, “Morning No. 1”, has gained popularity over the years and established her as someone who can speak on almost anything with honesty and ease, managing to make her point while simultaneously being entertaining.

Commenting on being one of the Influential Women in the industry Malishka said: "Thank you to the lovely, encouraging people in my life who always tell me to focus on the goal and on what's right and not on what others think. There's a long way to go and this is an important, lovely milestone."

Nisha Narayanan, COO, Red FM said: "Red FM in Mumbai has been home for Malishka for the past 11 years. Without doubt, Mumbai and Malishka have been synonymous; at least as far as mornings are concerned. She is influential to a fault and contagious with her energy.”

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan also congratulated Malishka on her achievement in a testimonial to Impact magazine, saying: "Malishka brought new life into a budding FM industry and became its game-changer. I've heard her unapologetically holding authority's accountable, irreverently interviewing people and chatting with her listeners for over 10 years now. Her unfailing energy, her flair for the medium and her connect with the common man/listener is remarkable.  She is entertaining, warm, witty and full of ideas, on and off radio too. Whether it's TV, or chat shows, theatre or a Cause she has championed, I've seen her take on everything with tremendous passion. She is inspiring and has made a genuine difference in the way FM radio is listened to and loved. Her voice and work impacts and influences millions of people each day and I hope she continues to use it beautifully as always. My favourite part about her however, is that she is an incorrigible flirt."
