Q8 Pulse launches ‘Sana Al-Kuwait’

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Nawara Fat­ta­hova

KUWAIT: The pop­u­lar ra­dio sta­tion ‘Q8 Pulse’ (Nabd Al-Kuwait) 88.8 FM un­veiled the new style and con­tents of the Sana AlKuwait pro­gram, which is broad­cast from Sun­day to Thurs­day from 6:30 am - 9:30 am. Sal­man Al-Na­jadi, the an­chor of the pro­gram, said lis­ten­ers will en­joy the new look of the pro­gram this sea­son. “This pro­gram is a chal­lenge for us and the man­age­ment put great trust in us with a three­hour live broad­cast. We will dou­ble our ef­forts to do a good job and meet ex­pec­ta­tions,” he said dur­ing a press con­fer­ence on Tues­day at the ra­dio sta­tion’s head­quar­ters at 360 Mall.

“A three-hour on-air broad­cast is a great re­spon­si­bil­ity. But this way, we will give a chance to most peo­ple to hear us, as our show is aired dur­ing the most im­por­tant hours when peo­ple are driv­ing to school, work or break­fast. We re­al­ize that all cat­e­gories are lis­ten­ing to us, so we talk about dif­fer­ent is­sues of their in­ter­est,” added Na­jadi.

Feed­back is im­por­tant

“I review feed­back on var­i­ous so­cial me­dia sites and crit­i­cism I re­ceive to cor­rect my mis­takes. Peo­ple are look­ing for­ward to lis­ten to our show. Last sea­son, we were re­ceiv­ing phone calls of lis­ten­ers be­fore even the show started. We try hard to be close to peo­ple. We are funny some­times, and se­ri­ous at other times,” he ex­plained. The show sources news from the dailies. “We make a sum­mary of the most im­por­tant news pub­lished in all news­pa­pers and only broad­cast good and pos­i­tive news.

We are the sun­rise, as the show starts in the be­gin­ning of the day,” stressed Na­jadi. Sana Al-Kuwait tack­les a di­verse range of sub­jects. “It has cul­tural, sci­en­tific, artis­tic, mu­si­cal, so­cial, tech­no­log­i­cal and sports con­tent. The show in­cludes a short daily weather fore­cast with Eisa Ra­madan, the cur­rent traf­fic sit­u­a­tion and shorts on Kuwaiti and Arab soap op­eras, foot­ball matches, cook­ing and pop­u­lar per­son­al­i­ties in the com­mu­nity,” said Zainab bint Ali, the other an­chor of the pro­gram.

Other seg­ments

“The show in­cludes a health seg­ment one about car­diac dis­eases and an­other about skin­care and der­ma­to­logic dis­eases. Then we have seg­ments about books, the lat­est Kuwaiti smart­phone apps, horoscopy and im­por­tant events that took place in the past on this day. We also have weekly seg­ments such as ‘fish mar­ket’, ‘Thurs­day mu­sic mix’, and a seg­ment from Bahrain,” Ali added.

Talal Al-Yaqout, CEO of 88.8 FM, said more pro­grams will be broad­cast on ‘Q8 Pulse’, in­clud­ing so­cial, po­lit­i­cal and health pro­grams. “These pro­grams should meet the taste of all age cat­e­gories with their dif­fer­ent sub­ject mat­ters from all fields,” he pointed out.
