New chart for BBC Asian Network

The BBC Asian Network is to broadcast the world's first Official Asian Download Chart, replacing the Saturday afternoon opinion-based buzz chart.

Presented by Bobby Friction, the three-hour extended show is set to launch on Saturday 27 March from 3pm till 6pm.

The chart will be compiled by The Official Charts Company, and will be based on UK-only digital retail sales.

Mark Strippel, Head of Music and Events, BBC Asian Network, says: "The Asian Network takes its responsibility towards supporting the Asian music industry very seriously and we're proud to be launching the first official chart format.

"The formation of this chart has been a long time coming and is a real landmark moment."

Bobby Friction adds: "To say I'm excited to present the world's first Asian Download Chart show is an understatement! I've spent 20 years in this industry waiting for something like this to happen, and presenting the show is something I'll do with joy and full-on passion.
