CITY 101.6 FM Announces New Programme Grid

‘Breakfast No.1- The Baap of All Breakfasts !’  on Week Days  Hosted by RJs Malavika and Lokesh

Arabian Radio Network (ARN), recently announced a new programme grid for CITY 101.6 FM, the top Asian contemporary radio station.
CITY 101.6 has a new breakfast show called ‘Breakfast No.1 – ‘The Baap of all Breakfasts!’ from 6.00 to 10.00 (UAE) on weekdays with RJ Malavika and one of the newest members of the City 101.6 family - Lokesh. Together, they make only one promise - to put the listeners in the right mood for the entire day. Malavika and Lokesh will be joined by Softy Singh, Lacy Lily and Hawaldar Gaitonde from 7.30-8.30 (UAE) in ‘City Ki Pagaal Paltan’ with their naughty humour and wicked antics.
The show ‘Bend it like City’ with RJ Paikar is now a lifestyle show on week days from 10.00-13.00. So right from meeting the bosses to choosing the right sun glasses and from hearty meals to trendy deals, the show has everything that listeners need to know about ‘LIFE’ and ‘STYLE’ in Dubai. Paikar will also pick a star from their field of work and chat with them, taking listeners behind-the-scenes on various professions. From glamorous make-up artists to famous chefs to people who have dedicated their lives to a cause, everyone is covered on the new ‘Bend it like City’.
Mahmoud Al Rasheed, General Manager of ARN, said: “In 2009, City 101.6 was rated as the number one station in Dubai, and we aim to sustain the ranking this year too by presenting our loyal listeners with the best entertainment shows and music.”
The lunch hour will now be extra special as Paikar and new host Sid , another new member of the City family', will co-host a request show – ‘Bajaaun Kya?’ on weekdays from 13.00-14.00. Sleepy afternoons will be a thing of the past as the all new ‘XXL’ with Sid hits the airwaves on weekdays from 14.00-17.00. The show is poised to offer double masti, double mazaa and a double dose of entertainment. From 16.00-17.00 is the dedicated hour for the young and the young at heart during the ‘Yuva Hour’, where Sid gets to peep into the world of college life and the young and trendy in Dubai.
Steve Smith, Chief Operating Officer of ARN, said: “We are looking forward to receiving listener feedback on the new show grid. We are committed to our mandate to keep ARN as the broadcast network of choice for every person, every advertiser, and on every delivery platform.”
In the evening hours, catch the awesome twosome – Tia and Rohit on weekdays from 17.00-21.00 on ‘Drive Master GoGo’ as they sparkle with their madness, crazy humour and not-so-subtle jabs at each other. From 20.00-21.00 is the time for love advice with Tia and Rohit as they play all the favourite love songs and act as the vacuum cleaners in your love mess- all this in one action-packed show.
And finally it’s time to unwind and chill tonight with Rubina and Karishma as they calm frayed nerves and give listeners what truly is - music to your ears on ‘Chill Tonight’ on weekdays from 21.00 to midnight. Tune in to ‘Love Request on Chill Tonight’ for your favorite song or tell someone that you care.
