Radio Tarana signs on for Waitakere’s Diwali
Top Indian radio station Radio Tarana has signed on as the premier sponsor for Waitakere’s Diwali Festival.
Radio Tarana’s Managing Director Robert Khan says,” Waitakere Diwali Festival 2005 is a great platform for all cultures to celebrate this special occasion and we are proud to be associated with it.”
Waitakere’s Diwali Festival at The Trusts Stadium on Sunday 16 October (1pm to 10.30pm) will have Radio Tarana broadcasting live, inviting people to come and take part in the festivities. Further programme details are to be released shortly.
As New Zealand’s number one Indian Radio Station, Radio Tarana’s rise to the top has been swift. First entering Auckland’s crowded airwaves in 1996; the radio station is 24-7 and also has nationwide internet broadcasting. According to the AC Nielsen 2005 Radio Survey, Radio Tarana has 5% of Auckland’s radio market, attracting 39,000 listeners weekly.
The Diwali Festival 2005 is organised by the Waitakere Ethnic Board (WEB), after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Waitakere City Council in September 2003. Aiming to represent all of the ethnic groups in Waitakere City, the board helps migrants and refugees to voice their issues to local and central government.
Waitakere Ethnic Board (WEB) President Abdul Rafik says “I am pleased to have Radio Tarana’s sponsorship for major ethnic festivals like Diwali organised by the board which promotes better understanding of one of the many diverse cultures of this city. This shows the level of support and commitment of a responsible organisation in furthering WEB’s aim of bringing different cultures together.”
