Award-winning presenter and journalist, Anila Dhami has joined Sunrise Radio to front its new Sunday morning current affairs show.

Announcing the news, Sunrise Radio Managing Director Tony Lit MBE said, “Sunrise Radio has always been the voice for British Asians over the past 31 years and with the challenges being faced here in the UK and Worldwide, I feel that it’s important that Sunrise keeps our listeners informed and also gives them a platform to share their opinions. It has never been more important than at the present, that we have our say and make our positive contributions to these on-going challenges. As a result have I made the decision to bring back a current affairs programme called, ‘Anila Dhami on Sunday’ which will be hosted by the very talented Anila Dhami, her CV is more than impressive including Channel 5 News, BBC, ITV and The Telegraph.

I am sure with her unique journalistic instinct and calm persona, she will bring out the best in moderating any debate and asking her in studio guests the questions that the nation is wanting to be asked of politicians, medical professionals, business and community leaders, and most importantly giving you our audience a say in proceedings with the opportunity to call in live and message the studio with your thoughts and opinions every Sunday between 10 am and 12 noon.”

Dhami added, “Journalism has never felt more important and of service than it does today during this historical moment of the coronavirus pandemic, when people are looking to journalists for information. I am really excited about hosting this program which will truly serve the British Asian community through its informative content, relevant interviews, and interactive approach where people can call, message and WhatsApp to really have their voices heard on the issues of the day that matter to them – ultimately providing people with a platform and strengthening the voice of the British Asian community.”
