Sunoh Edinburgh is Edinburgh’s first and only asian radio station. Since its launch on the 1st of July 2018 it has garnered a very loyal local as well as international listener base exceeding 7k. It has more than 10 presenters and caters for multi-lingual communities in and around Edinburgh.

It is also the first radio station in the UK to broadcast live in Pakistan on a weekly basis creating and nurturing bonds between the communities between the 2 countries.

The Edinburgh Asian Awards was born out of a simple vision; to create an event that would honour achievers from within the Asian community in Edinburgh; to create one of the most important events of its kind ever to be staged in Edinburgh for the asian community. The Edinburgh Asian Awards aims to pay tribute to Asian success across all walks of life in Edinburgh; emphasising inspiring achievements and highlighting inspirational role models in the fields of business, hospitality, entertainment, community, philanthropy and popular arts and culture.
