Muscat: Everyone in Oman can now tune in to Times FM (T FM), the Sultanate’s newest radio station, which was officially launched on Monday.
Under the auspices of Dr Abdul Mon’em bin Mansour Al Hassani, Oman’s Minister of Information, T FM went live on Monday morning. The station features the latest and most popular music from across the world, broadcast straight to listeners in the Sultanate, alongside breaking news and latest developments from across the nation.
T FM reaches both Muscat and Salalah through the frequencies 95.4MHz and 91MHz, respectively, and hosts over 28 media products under the wing of the Muscat Media Group, one of the pioneers of modern media in the Sultanate.
Garima Bhandari, T FM programme director, said: “Although we are in the test phase, we are working on presenting a platform for all palates. We’re taking our groove to the next level.”
"The station represents the English voice of the number one news outlet in Oman, the Times of Oman newspaper, ensuring that listeners within its range can stay tuned to the latest local and international updates.”
Featuring the latest technological upgrades in the Sultanate, TFM is currently available in Muscat, North Al Batinah, and Dhofar Governorates, and plans are on hand to expand it to the rest of the Sultanate as well.
The station has so much in store, with a wide range of brand new shows debuting exclusively on TFM. This should come as no surprise, given that the station is all about keeping the connection between listeners and presenters alive.
The motto of TFM, “Let’s Talk”, sums up the main focus of the station, which is listening to the voice of the people and interacting with them, be it on air via live shows, through direct communication on WhatsApp and phone calls, or through the TFM social media accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
TFM encourages its listeners and followers on social media to add their own voices to the station by sending in video or audio clips of their suggestions. They can also tweet or snap their desired topics and might get the chance to be featured on one of the station’s live shows.
“Tune in to hear us, and you’ll find us more than willing to hear you back and get the conversation going. This can be done by tuning in to the station or through Facebook on TFM Oman, Instagram on tfmoman, Twitter on @TFMOman, and Snapchat on TFM Oman,” Bhandari added.
