The radio station will develop content in association with the Channel 2 Group Corporation.
Dubai-based broadcast company, Channel 2 Group Corporation and Fun Asia Network (FAN) have launched Talk 100.3 – the UAE’s only South Asian sport and business radio station.
The new station features two live daily shows every week from Sunday to Thursday including breakfast and drive time slots – rounded-off by specialised hourly segments from 11 AM – 4 PM including the business midday wrap at 1 PM and sports highlight with business reports from around the world and subcontinent throughout the day.
Talk 100.3 features well-known and established radio presenters including Sobia Khan, Vivek Sanil and Anjan Ganesh, who return to the airways on Talk 100.3.
Following the launch of Talk 100.3, the station kicks off the cricket season with the ICC World Test Cricket Championship 2021 commencing on June 18, 2021, with international commentator Boria Majumdar taking the commentary box live from the Talk 100.3 studios.
Commenting on the launch, Sam Thakkar, Fun Asia Group CEO, said: “To say we’re pretty excited that this day has come! Talk 100.3 has been a long time coming – and we know it’s what the UAE has been missing. The Fun Asia Network continues to grow its presence in the UAE offering audiences high-quality content– from music to market news, business trends, financial forums and the overall global economy.”
Ajay Sethi, Chairman and MD Channel 2 Group Corporation, added: “We are excited to partner with Fun Asia, not only to grow the audience of their existing range of great stations, but to develop a whole new format, combining our sporting expertise with their mass reach and broadcasting.”
