BBC Radio Stoke is launching a new programme aimed at the Asian community this evening between 7 and 9pm, hosted by Anisha Shah.
The self titled Anisha show will mix topical debate with music, entertainment and lifestyle chat — spanning health, fashion, beauty, food & drink and reviews of the week's top news stories.
Sue Owen, Editor, Radio Stoke, says: "BBC Radio Stoke has broadcast a programme aimed at the Asian Community for many years and we think the time is right to refresh our offering. Anisha Shah is an experienced reporter and presenter and she's passionate about local life and issues which affect the diverse communities of North Staffordshire and South Cheshire. She's also a big music fan, so as well as tackling important subjects — ANISHA will be great entertainment."
Anisha says of her new show: "The show's a great concept as it's inclusive of all and meant for anybody who wants to find out more about the community in which they live. At the same time it'll be a big personality show. Friendly, fun and feisty — that's what listeners can expect from me. Staffordshire and Cheshire are vibrant lively communities, with so many voices to be heard, I'm excited about delving in and expressing that passion and having some fun on air!"
