KSA targets regional markets with new TV channels
by Vijaya Cherian on Dec 16, 2009

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Culture and Information (MOCI) has announced that four new TV channels will be launched from the Kingdom at the start of the new Hijra year.

Two of these channels will focus on the Holy Quran and Sunnah and be broadcast from the holy cities of Meccah and Medinah, Abdul Aziz Khoja, minister of Culture and Information announced. He commented that the two channels "are a gift from King Abdullah [Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques] to the Islamic world".

The other two channels will focus on economic and cultural issues. The former will seek to highlight's Saudi Arabias position as one of the largest producers and exporters of oil while the latter will seek to bridge the cultural gap between the Kingdom and international players.

Five new private FM radio stations are also scheduled to launch this year from Saudi Arabia. The Saudi MOCI has already short-listed 15 companies for five licenses to operate the stations.

Dr. Riyad Najm, assistant minister for enginneering at the MOCI added that selected companies would be informed to make their offers for the next phase of the qualification process.
