Head of Programs
FM 101 Clarity Communications, Pakistan
Apr 1998 - May 2000 (2 years 1 month)
This was second radio channel to be launched in the country and was the biggest network, comprising of eight radio stations throughout Pakistan. The organization wanted to hire someone who could work on the flaws of the entire network. In addition to this, they wanted to device new features and change some of the programs entirely, according to the listener-ship, the target audience as well as to capture the market. The channel lacked an identity and vibe, thus an overhaul was required. The channel was then changed into young, hip and trendy that not only catered to the 30 plus audience but also for those between 20- 25 years. This multiplied the company’s profit. Some of the programs produced and hosted by myself are: Band of the Month; Rockistan underground music show interviews with underground bands; Nitro 101 Tribute to legend bands, Exclusive tribute to Patyala family with Shafqat Amanat Ali; Teen uncensored ( A vocal program about teens and their problems); Out door events and branded transmission; Sonu Nigam concert, Ahmed Jehanzeb Concert, Microsoft PDC Pakistan Developers Conference, YLC Conference (Young Leaders Conference), Nestle Presentation for the best teen artistry designs, Siemens Mobile Mela, Tang Branded Transmission,
