RCS continues to make inroads in the Middle East, as more stations upgrade from Master Control to Zetta and GSelector. In the Emirate of Ajman, Gold FM 101.3 from the Channel 4 group made the switch in July.
Since its launch in 2010, Gold FM 101.3 has been the UAE’s fastest growing Malalyalan radio station, It, and sister stations Radio 4 89.1, Al Rabia and Channel 4 FM 104.8 are all based in the UAE, and owned by Ajman Independent Studios LLC. Only one station remains to be migrated over from Master Control to Zetta and GSelector.
Elsewhere in the region, FM888 in Kuwait has fully transitioned to GSelector, and plans are well underway for some major upgrades to stations in Egypt.
