After the launch of its Arabic radio station, Dubai 93.9 (Sout Al Asala) last week, Dubai Radio Network (DRN) is back with an English-language radio station. Dubai 92, which is a merger between Arabian Radio Network’s Free channel and Dubai FM, hit the radio waves this morning at 6 am. "Dubai 92 will be our gift to all the lovers of the classic hits that have rocked the world for the past three decades and who demand to hear their favourite old tunes, while still keeping up … with new music trends," said Abdul Latif Al Sayegh, DRN's CEO. Al Sayegh, who is also the CEO of ARN, added that Free would continue to broadcast music for the next couple of weeks. During this period, Free listeners will be directed to Dubai 92, where listeners can win prizes worth US $3000 daily from 7am to 10am. Commenting on the new team at DRN, Greg Burnes, head of programming at Dubai 92 said: "A new presenter line-up will be introduced employing some of the best young radio talent in the world (from New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and South Africa), delivering a sound that reflects the excitement of living in Dubai and the surrounding emirates."
