About BBC Asian Network

Listen to the internet radio of BBC Asian Network, which was launched in 1988 for the growing South Asian communities in the UK. The Asian Network cares about the Indian subcontinent’s diaspora. The target audience is the younger (under 35) population of the South Asian origins of the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Maldives, etc.).
The programme language is primarily English, but occasionally the station provides native language contents in the schedule. The radio's playlist consisted of music from the target audience’s cultural line, South Asian pop and even bhangra and bollywood included besides the South Asian rhythmic contemporary music like hip-hop, R&B and underground. In the means of information news, live events, conversations related to the South Asian communities are broadcasted. The station illuminates the weekdays between 7am and 10am with Nikita Kanda who leads the breakfast show with all-time good vibes, daily motivation with guests discussing various topics.
