Following strategic review of internal operations, Gulf News Media has today announced that it will be closing its broadcasting division effective September 30, 2016. Having come to an agreement, all operations will be managed by Umm Al Quwain Broadcasting including Josh on Frequency 97.8 and Hayat on Frequency 95.6.
GN Broadcasting has welcomed Steve Pulley to the role of Broadcasting Director. With 30 years of international radio experience across companies such as Virgin Radio International and Arabian Radio Network, Steve was most recently General Manager of Bamboo Media, where he provided services to international radio stations and local businesses looking to improve premium content services. Having recently returned to Dubai, Steve will now be working across UAE radio stations Radio 1, Radio 2, Josh and Hayat FM in his role as Broadcasting Director.
“It is an exceptionally exciting time for the radio business,” says Steve. “Radio remains a key medium for all UAE residents who want music, fun and information – when and where they want it. On whatever platform, it’s still the most affordable way for advertisers – big and small – to consistently reach new and existing customers, especially those who are increasingly on-the-go. GN Broadcasting will be working smarter and harder than ever to entertain listeners and provide innovation for Advertisers.”
