Sunrise holds birthday party at the House of Commons

Sunrise Radio celebrated its 25th anniversary in the Terrace Pavilion at the House of Commons on Tuesday 18th November.

The event marked a quarter century of Sunrise Radio and provided a platform to launch The Sunrise Training Academy, a free training scheme for those wanting to pursue a career in radio.

Hosted by Priti Patel MP and Virendra Sharma MP, the celebration was attended by dignitaries, business leaders and celebrities like Keith Vaz MP, Lord Popat, Stephen Hammond MP, Vikas Magoon, CEO Veetee, Kuljinder Bahia of Southall Travel, Lebara Chairman Ratheesh Yoganathan and Jay Sean, with live entertainment from Navin Kundra and H Dhami.

Tony Lit, Managing Director Sunrise Radio said: “It gives me immense pride to be celebrating 25 years of broadcasting history and to receive thesupport of so many friends we’ve made along those years.

“When Sunrise Radio launched in 1989, it was the UK’s first Asian broadcast media outlet and revolutionised the industry, providing jobs, generating a platform for Asian businesses to advertise and it created a domino effect of other media outlets to follow suit. However, I think I’m most proud of the profound impact Sunrise Radio has had on the progress of Asian community, both financially and as a society, and we are dedicated to keep on with being progressive, through collaborations with universities like UCL and ImperialCollege, The Sunrise Training Academy and so much more.”
