There's a new player on the UAE's airwaves. Heart 107.1, which launched on Monday, promises daily back-to-back hits from the 90s, 2000s and present day.

The new station will feature four live daily shows (breakfast, morning, afternoon and drive time slots) from Sunday to Thursday.

Heart 107.1 has a mix of high-profile and well-known, established radio presenters including Dave Cleary, who has made the move over from Dance FM — and Fadi Mansour, who returns to the airways.

“Heart 107.1 has been a long time coming — and we know it’s just what the UAE needs. Get ready to listen to some excellent music, the best of the best radio presenters — and a radio station which will always make you feel good,” said Theo Makris, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Shock Middle East, who own the new station.

Raed Zidan, Co-Owner of Shock Middle East added, “We know there has been a huge gap in the market for this kind of radio station — and with such high radio listenership in the UAE, it was a no-brainer for us to bring Heart 107.1 to the market.

"Radio is at the heart of people’s lives here in the UAE — whether that’s listening in the car on the way to work or tuning in on the school run. It’s just so important there’s a station people want to tune into — and with Heart 107.1, you’ll never want to listen to anything else!”
