As part of the plan by Al Wisal to cover all governorates of the Sultanate and to reach a greater number of listeners, Oman’s number one radio station will begin broadcasting in Sharqiyah at the end of June.
Al Wisal announced its strategic expansion plan in February, which included widening its geographical coverage to the governorates of North and South Al Sharqiyah, as an addition to the governorates of Muscat and Dhofar and parts of North and South Batinah. The expansion will increase Al Wisal’s reach to more than half the population.
This means that a total of 504,187 people from the two governorates will be able to listen to Al Wisal and interact with its popular shows.
Al Wisal aims to meet the needs of the two governorates through various programmes and innovations, including hosting a larger number of officials and decision-makers from Al Sharqiyah North and South, as well as placing a greater focus on their activities and social issues.
Since its launch in 2008 by SABCO Media, Al Wisal has continuously diversified its programmes and activities to become the leading radio station in the Sultanate. Its shows, such as “Sabah Al Wisal”, “Muntada Al Wisal” and “Sawa Al Hawa”, have gained many listeners, while its social media platforms has seen Al Wisal become a leader on Twitter with about 87,000 followers.
Al WIsal is the first radio station launched under the umbrella of SABCO Media and includes a dedicated team in the field of broadcast media from the Sultanate of Oman and the Arab world.
