2UE and 3AW’s Real Dubai Experience
Fairfax Radio Network’s News Talk stations 2UE and 3AW this weekend launch the Real Dubai Experience with Dubai Tourism.
For 2UE, Tim Webster is broadcasting live from Dubai 12pm to 6pm Saturday and Sunday with both stations sending four lucky listeners from Sydney and Melbourne to join the experience.
2UE Content Director Clinton Maynard, who is travelling with Tim Webster, said visiting Dubai has totally changed his perception of the city.
"I'd thought Dubai was simply a stopover with a few very big buildings to look at and enormous shopping centres to visit. It's far more than that and as we've discovered the city offers so much for tourists, and particularly families, to be amazed by.
"We've discovered the most extraordinary aquarium in the world, home to an Australian saltwater crocodile, which is the largest in captivity, and all inside a shopping centre and the fact you can pat a penguin while visiting an indoor ski park in a city surrounded by desert is just mind blowing.”
Julie King, Director of Dubai Tourism Australia and New Zealand office said: “We brought out Tim Webster and his team to experience some of what Dubai has to offer and develop inspiring content for radio 2UE’s listeners, both on-air and online.”
“Tim has a loyal audience that is a key demographic for holidays to Dubai. We have already seen an increase in enquiries about the destination before Tim has even gone to air, and we anticipate an enthusiastic response from his listeners after this weekend’s shows.”
