Mumbai, 30th March 2012: India’s No 1 Radio Network and Radio broadcaster at the Golden Mikes 92.7 BIG FM is the radio partner this year of the global campaign ‘Earth Hour’ which is fighting against climate change and working towards spreading awareness globally of the climatic changes and its ills.

On Saturday 31 March 2012 from 8:30 PM to 9.30 PM at Shivaji Park, millions of people across the globe and right here in India will switch off lights at homes and businesses for one crucial hour – Earth Hour, the world’s largest public environmental action – acknowledging a commitment to go beyond the hour with actions that benefit the planet in the year ahead.
