QF Radio, the in-house broadcasting station for Qatar Foundation (QF), recently celebrated the completion of the 2015-2016 season of programming with an appreciation ceremony that marked the accomplishments of its students and staff.

The event, which took place in Education City, held particular significance for QF Radio which, this year, collaborated with a record number of students, QF centres and organisations to bring a selection of diverse and exciting programmes to the local community. As a defining factor of this year’s shows, QF Radio acknowledged the contribution of youth in shaping the country’s future development and growth, by producing programmes which have helped to address the Grand Challenges facing Qatar.

“The station is determined to attract as many Qatari youth as possible," Mr Mohammed Al Beshri, Media Centre Manager, said. "Our in-house training courses have provided young men and women with the fundamental knowledge and experience needed to work in real-world media environments.” “QF Radio has integrated the country’s next generation into the station’s team through education and valuable experience. By sharing knowledge in broadcast journalism and production, we have introduced young people to the necessary skills to produce and present their own radio shows,” he continued.

During this year’s ceremony, over 30 students, faculty and staff were celebrated for their commitment to delivering quality programmes in the fields of science and technology, health, medicine, design, travel and culture. These topics reflect QF’s vision to support human, social and economic development in Qatar.

QF Radio will continue efforts to involve and collaborate with QF students and centres. If you are interesting in contributing to the upcoming 2016-2017 season, please contact
