Tamil FM station to launch soon

By VM Sathish

The first full-fledged Tamil FM radio station, Hello FM (89.5 FM), is getting ready for official launch soon.

The radio channel from the Dina Dandi Group of Chennai will be using a Fujiarah frequency, Emirates Business has learnt.

While there have been semi-Tamil FM and AM radio stations as part of Malayalam radio stations, the first full- fledged Tamil FM channel will cater to a market of nearly 300,000 Tamil population in the UAE.

Three new radio stations, targeting Keralites and Tamilians, are planning for official launch some time this year, said Zhakaria Mohammed, Chief Operating Officer of Gulf Madhyamam, a Malayalam Newspaper in Dubai.
