90.8 FM Hits the Air Waves from Fujairah on 11/11/11 at 11.11am


President and CEO at Fujairah Media Group, Mekki Abdulla (pictured), said that Fujairah’s latest radio venture was commencing this week, on Friday 11 November 2011.

The significance of the launch date for the new rock station wasn’t apparent until radio station DJ, Steve Johnston, wrote these words today on his Facebook Page:

‘1 day… 11/11/11…11.11.am’

In the Numbers

What is it about Mekki Abdulla’s fixation with numbers? Remember how he was planning to open a new drive through movie experience in Fujairah with it launching on 10/10/10 at 10pm?

Always sprouting with ideas and new possibilities, Abdulla has a good strike rate in terms of pulling off new ventures and thinks that 4 ideas out of 10 in this economic climate is not bad going.

Recently the Fujairah Media Group has been instrumental in issuing new licenses and getting radio stations on the air in Germany as well as in North and South Sudan.

Mekki currently owns and manages 13 radio stations globally and 4 TV channels regionally, in addition to managing and operating Creative City Free Zone Fujairah.

Mekki Abdulla said there was no official launch ceremony planned. When the switch is flicked tomorrow and 90.8 FM rocks into life the UAE public will vote with their dials.

UAE Rocks

Steve Johnston (pictured) expressed his confidence today, saying:

“90.8FM will be what the UAE listening audience has been waiting for.”
