Rotary International as part of their annual Rotary Group Study Exchange programme (GSE) selects professionally acclaimed youngsters with multiple talents, to visit a partnering district in the United States of America each year. Selection to the programme is through a series of rigorous interviews and group discussions. BIG FM’s RJ Harsha who participated in this selection process was eventually chosen to be a part of this 5 member team based on his unique talents & past contributions towards the field of media entertainment.

RJ Harsha will be hosted by various American families over the duration of a month and will be taken on vocational visits to major radio stations in Minneapolis area apart from sharing our cultural background across various platforms.

"It is indeed a prestigious moment that RJ Sikkapatte Tarle Harsha, our popular breakfast RJ has been selected as the cultural and vocational ambassador from India, representing both our country and the company, to the United States.
