Broadcasting live from the Ooredoo Tower in Kuwait City, Pinoy Arabia ME now on its 8th year continues to sizzle. Since its launch on October 30, 2014, Pinoy Arabia ME has generated a sensational following with over 436,000 organic followers on Facebook and a great number of listeners not only in Kuwait but in the GCC countries and beyond.
Pinoy Arabia ME fully supported by the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait and Filipino community organizations, plays Filipino and English current and old hits 24 hours with regular guests from the Philippine Embassy and other visiting Philippine government officials as well as known personalities and dignitaries in Kuwait. It caters to Filipino community events and other vital announcements. Pinoy Arabia has become one of the trusted sources of information among the Filipino community especially at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pinoy Arabia ME has carved its niche not only as a reliable source of information for Overseas Filipinos but a venue of pure entertainment.
