City 7 TV changes ownership

Following the recent announcement that well-established Saudi-Arabian news channel, Al-Arab has ceased operations, another channel in the region has been on the brink of closure leading to a change of ownership. Dubai-based English language television channel, City 7 TV formerly part of BinHendi Enterprises, will now operate under the umbrella of WeTel-TV, a TV platform for global educational news and current affairs. The new acquisition will be headed by President and Editor-in-Chief of WeTel-TV, Adil Matin and will also see City 7 TV continue operations, but as a new educational TV in the UAE.

Media community unite to help friend in need

The UAE’s media community is uniting to help Jeff Price, who has been diagnosed with a rare brain condition that his medical insurance won’t cover. A member of the media community in the UAE for over 22 years, Jeff has hosted numerous radio and TV shows, helped to launch City 7 TV, Radio 1 as well as Radio 2 and voiced family entertainment for many premium events such as Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, Legends Rock Dubai Tennis and Dubai Duty Free Tennis. He has championed causes across the region and raised funds for a number of charities, projects and causes.

Family, friends and colleagues of Jeff have helped to cover his initial surgeries, but he now needs to raise more than AED300, 000 in order to have a valve fitted for a third time to reduce pressure on his brain and for the further medical treatment that will be required in this complex diagnosis.
