Background

Sunrise describes itself as "the Greatest Asian Radio Station in the World", a slogan that features prominently on the station's jingles.

The current schedule includes Tony Patti, Ravi Sharma, Sarita Sabherwal & Paul Shah.

From the early 1990s, Sunrise Radio's Astra satellite channel was used to distribute IRN's hourly news bulletins to smaller commercial, community and hospital radio stations. This service ceased on 31 August 2004, and a designated IRN channel was set up on the Hotbird satellite.

History

Sunrise Radio actually started out as a pirate radio station in London, in the 1980s [3]. Sunrise Radio has now released its television channel Sunrise TV which is available on Sky channel 830.
