Over the last 11 months, Sharjah TV has made several qualitative achievements, whether by launching various programs that meet the audience’s interests in various social, economic, cultural, religious and entertainment fields, or by showing dramatic series that resonated audience acceptance, in addition to keeping pace with many cultural and heritage events, as well as its keenness to broadcasting programs and transmitting them through a large network of correspondents and technical cadres, despite the exceptional circumstances brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
Mr. Al Ghaithi further added that, “The audience’s passion for television still provides the possibility to produce the most diverse and attractive entertainment programs for the viewer, so that this mass medium is able to continue to compete with all forms of entertainment and other knowledge in this era, and keep the audience in anticipation of the new in all seasons.”
