All India Radio, Mysore came into existence on 10.09.1934 as an amateur attempt by Prof. M.V.Gopalaswamy, a Professor of Psychology in University of Mysore, which, over the years, evolved into a professional broadcasting institution. In fact,he is credited with having given the Indian Name “AKASHVANI” to All India Radio, which is said to have been endorsed by Government of India later. All India Radio, Mysore was a private enterprise till 1942 when Mysore City municipal Council under the Princely State of Mysore took over it. However, after independence, the station was taken over by Government of India and it came under the administration of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. In 1950, the station was shifted to Bangalore.

Tribute to Dr.M.V. Gopalaswamy – founder of Akashvani, Mysuru

Dr M.V. Gopalaswamy is the father of Mysore Akashvani. He served as the professor of psychology and the principal of the Maharaja’s college. The radio station that he started in 1935 in Mysore is his great contribution to the field of culture. This was the first private radio station in the whole of India and it speaks volumes of a person’s interest, passion, hard work and the instinct to do good to his fellow human beings.

For six long years Dr Gopalaswamy ran AIR single-handedly spending money from his own pocket. Owing to financial constraint he handed over the administration to the Mysroe city municipality. Later from 1 January 1942, the provincial government of the Maharaja assumed the responsbility of running the organisation.
