Every week, ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) features a Qatari startup in our ‘Startup of the Week' segment. Qatar has some of the most creative, unique, and impactful startups in the region, and we cover them all across a variety of industries in Doha—from fashion and beauty to food and dining, health, education, technology, and more!
This week, we're featuring FAME FM Qatar - a new entertainment radio station in the country that mainly plays Arabic music. FAME FM Qatar started streaming online through their website in August 2020, highlighting Top 40 Arabic songs and also playing some English, French, Spanish, and Turkish Top 40. Most of the Arabic music is Levantine with some from Iraq, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and the GCC.
FAME FM Qatar, a sister company of FAME FM Lebanon, takes great pride in the 'variety mix' music it plays. Let's get to know a little bit more about this startup and let's start tuning in to their playlist!
FAME FM Qatar: The idea arose from the lack of radio stations in Qatar that cater to Arab expatriates. Most of the Arabic radio stations are playing GCC music and are not focusing on the Top 40 concept. With FAME FM Qatar, Arab expatriates are now getting a great dose of the latest Arabic hits.
FAME FM Qatar: Fame is the state of being known or talked about by many people, especially about their notable achievements. We aspire to become more popular by gaining more listeners and hopefully achieve great things too.
FAME FM Qatar: The founder of FAME FM Qatar is Tareq Madanat who owns the Madanat Media Production company that specializes in music production and distribution, events planning and management for concerts, fashion shows, weddings, etc. FAME FM is part of Madanat Media Production LLC in Qatar and in Jordan.
FAME FM Qatar: FAME FM Qatar is hip, trendy, and full of life. In addition to the Top 40 playlist, we follow and play the best new releases of both Arabic and other global music to provide a variety of feel-good songs for our listeners. This is what our shows look like:
FAME FM Qatar: Apart from listening on the website, FAME FM Qatar is also available on iOS, Google Play, and Windows stores. The app shows the listeners what they are listening to along with the album art. Also, you can vote for your favorite song to be part of the weekly Top 10 Program. Our station is also visible in most of the streaming radio applications and websites like ShoutCast, Streama, and many more.
FAME FM Qatar: Our next target is to move to FM frequencies soon. So, just keep tuning in to our online streams and check out our social media channels for the announcement.
