ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Senate Standing Committee on Information and Broadcasting Senator Faisal Javed on Monday inaugurated a digital audio broadcast (DAB) facility here at Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU).

In collaboration with Power 99 Islamabad, the university has recently established a digital podcasting setup to facilitate different departments, schools, and centres at the university in their educational and co-curricular activities.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Senator Faisal lauded the concept of digital content creation and dissemination hub on the campus.

He said the collaboration of the university with a professional broadcasting organisation would benefit both.

He also assured his full support for expanding the facility and establishing the School of Media Studies on the campus.

Earlier, Quaid-i-Azam University Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mohammad Ali said, the collaboration was a part of QAU’s efforts to establish academia-industry linkages.

He said the “QAU Radio” and later on the establishment of “Quaid-i-Azam School of Media Studies” would contribute to evolving and changing landscape of the media and communication industry by providing skilled human resources.

Chief Executive of Power 99 Najib Ahmed said the “QAU Radio” will mainstream the knowledge.

He further said this facility would serve as a tech lab for the university and would provide a podcast facility for every department.

QAU Radio in-charge Dr Salma Malik apprised the audience on the need and setting up of the facility and in her vote of thanks lauded the team and committee members.
