Fujairah Media Has Surprises in Store for 2011

Robert Lewis Tadros, VP Sales and Marketing for the Fujairah Media Group, was recently interviewed by Phil Blizzard about the contribution and hopes for the media in the eastern emirate.

Tadros explained that the Fujairah Media Group is now five years in its development and it incorporates three main parts:
+ Television network
+ Radio network
+ Creative City

The Fujairah Media Group operates some radio leases itself (Coast FM, Fujairah 92.6) but it also leases out radio stations to others (e.g. Jazz 106.8 which is managed from Berlin, Germany).

New Development
There is a new development in Fujairah radio due to commence in the first quarter of 2011. It will be in English but the new format is under wraps and will be revealed as a surprise.

The newly named Fujairah Television is the flagship but there are other programmes being offered such as a cooking show and road show.

Creative City
Creative City oversees the distribution of licenses for different kinds of media.

Tadros said that one can receive a license from Fujairah but broadcast throughout the UAE and beyond.

The largest drive through cinema in this part of the world is still being planned for Fujairah but the new starting date (the original date was 10/10/10 at 10pm) was not announced.

Tadros said that the media was developing in Fujairah which he said was a ‘developing emirate’.
