Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) has revealed that QF Radio will be entering a transitional phase over the next few months, and will cease transmissions at the end of October 2016.

Since its inception in 2009, QF Radio has served an essential role in advancing the strong awareness that Qatar Foundation’s initiatives enjoy today. Through its quality programming and wide exposure, QF Radio helped communicate the QF message in the first phase of its development and was successful in accomplishing its mandate.

QF has grown exponentially and achieved results that significantly impact across each of its core areas of focus in Education, Research and Community Development. As the organisation enters a new phase of sustainable development and builds on its foundation and past achievements to deliver more focused results, as part of the country’s drive to achieve Qatar National Vision 2030, it must continue to be more efficient and beneficial to the public, and evolve the way it communicates with its audiences.

Mohammed Al Beshri, QF Media Center Manager, said: “We are truly proud of the network’s accomplishments, both in Arabic and in English, over the past seven years. QF Radio has been a key player in Qatar’s broadcast sector, and succeeded in connecting QF with the local community through its innovative and diversify youth and educational programming.” “Additionally, QF Radio has covered all of the foundation’s events and trained many of its universities’ students, who participated in presenting and producing an array of live and recorded programmes.”

“Of course, none of this would have been possible without the dedication of our staff members, and I want to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of them. It has been a genuine privilege to lead such a talented team.” Past and current successful programmes will be revisited and celebrated over the next few months. The Ramadan and summer schedules will be maintained and, until the end of October, the general public will be able to enjoy some of the programmes that marked the history of QF Radio.
