Shimla, April 4 (IANS) Listeners of All India Radio (AIR) can now access Himachal Pradesh’s local news on phone in the state Friday. Shimla AIR station director B.S. Lali launched the service here.

He said by dialling 125800 one can listen to the local AIR news in Shimla.

Those elsewhere in the state or the country can listen to Shimla news by prefixing the Shimla city STD code to the dedicated phone number. By dialling 125900, the national AIR news would be available.

“Reaching 99 percent of the population and 97 percent of the area in the hill state, AIR is far ahead of its rivals in the state,” said Lali.

“Shimla is the 14th radio station in the country to provide this service,” he said.

“In Kerala, we get 30,000 telephone calls every day to avail this service,” he said.
