Grants:IdeaLab/Asking radio station to share-a-fact about song or singer
Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?
Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
My focus is on the people in Mysore — however, this idea can be extended to other cities.
In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?
In what ways does this group communicate with each other?
This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter
What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?
Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
About local history, current affairs, ongoing sin Karnataka and India, health and disease, laws, etc.
What language Wikipedia projects will you promote to new readers?
How will you communicate with new readers? Will you be communicating with them online, in-person, or both?
My idea is to ask the radio station to do it each day for a month, and also make an announcement for a local meetup, where I would be meeting them in-person.
Describe your idea to engage new readers. How might it be implemented? What will you tell people about Wikipedia?
Think about the steps that might involved to make this idea happen, and what you might teach people about your experience or others' experiences using Wikipedia.
First of all, I would like them to just read Wikipedia — and after meeting them in person, I would tell them about how can they improve Wikipedia, by conducting a workshop where I would be helping them how to edit Wikipedia, and the philosophy of Wikipedia and Wikimedia Foundation and how they can make knowledge available to more people.
If you’re not certain about how to respond to this question when starting your idea, you do not need to answer it right now. Campaign participants and Wikimedia Foundation staff can help you consider some options.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?
Do you need people with specific skills or resources to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? Do you need advising from Wikimedia Foundation staff?
Yes, I would require a grant for pairing up with local radio station.
