The first FM radio station for Ludhiana FM Gold 100.1 Mhz began its services on Friday.
However, currently in the absence of a studio, programmes are being relayed from FM Gold Delhi and AIR Jalandhar.
Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Manish Tewari inaugurated the channel on the BSNL premises in Transport Nagar.
With this launch, Ludhiana has become the fifth city in the country after four metros of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata to have its own FM Gold Radio channel.
Ludhiana Newsline was the first to report that Ludhiana Gold FM would begin its services on August 16.
Addressing a function at Guru Nanak Dev Bhawan, Tewari said that by November this year, local programmes of two-hour duration, one hour each in the morning and evening, would be produced and aired from the FM Gold Ludhiana.
He said that being the largest and the most important industrial hub of Punjab, there was a long-pending demand for a local radio station in Ludhiana.
Tewari said that the current range of 20 km radius of this channel would be enhanced and studio-based programmes would be produced and broadcast from here. He congratulated the Prasar Bharti officials and engineers on having made FM Gold Ludhiana a reality within a short span of four months.
Jawahar Sirckar, CEO, Prasar Bharti, AIR DG L D Mandloi and engineering-in-chief Yuvraj Bajaj also addressed the gathering. 

A cultural programme was organised on the occasion at Guru Nanak Bhawan. Top Punjabi singer Jasbir Jassi performed during the cultural programme.
