Through its various programmes, the station on the FM frequency 93.7 will highlight how QF contributes to Qatar’s vision 2030 to unlock human potential and its role in developing the local community.


QF Radio programmes range from educational to scientific and research and are aimed at educating listeners and enriching their knowledge. With over 19 original programmes across genres, QF Radio has something to offer everyone.  For example, Sports Global gives a run-through of sports news in Qatar and around the world, while The Art of Living covers the latest in art, fashion and music.


Research Matters features in-depth interviews with the people leading fascinating and diverse research projects and Cover to Cover runs lively discussion about literature and award winning/best selling English and Arabic titles. These programmes and many others can be heard throughout Qatar on 93.7 FM. QF Radio also gives students a chance to participate in the preparation and presentation of its programmes, helping them gain valuable broadcasting experience.

To achieve greater participation from students and the community, QF Radio has organised a number of workshops targeted at students, in co-operation with Northwestern University in Qatar.

QF radio director Saad al-Hudaifi said: “The launch of QF Radio 93.7 signals the beginning of a new era in broadcast in Qatar and throughout the region.


“Our programmes give voice to the aspirations of our young people and will be a vehicle for expression of many perspectives. The programmes are of high value and reflect the vision of Qatar Foundation in unlocking human potential.” He added: “In our studios we will give the opportunity for all to experience the atmosphere, work and gain experience which will qualify them to work radio stations in the future.”


QF Radio, which had been running temporary programmes on a limited frequency since its inception in 2010, spent the past year researching audience needs and preparing a fresh range of programmes aimed at Middle Eastern and global audiences to help unlock their potential.


“We worked for a long time to study the needs of our listeners and their preferences and to create programmes of high calibre that reflect QF’s vision of unlocking human potential,” said QF Radio head Saad Saleh al-Kuwari. “I invite all members of the community not only to listen to QF Radio but to participate in it with their own voices.”

QF Radio also streams online 24/7; visit www.qfradio.org.qa for more information.
