A source said that the general manager of Dubai Media Incorporation wants to to turn Noor Dubai to a heritage channel. Noor Dubai was once owned by the Dubai Media group, the same group that owns most Dubai radio channels as well as Nickelodeon and MTV Arabia and used to own Al Emarat Alyoum and Business 24/7 newspapers. Noor Dubai which calls itself a Social with an Islam vision channel won peoples heart with its creative yet traditional Islamic flavored was among the most popular channels in the UAE and the region.
Wonder why is it that when there is a brilliant idea someone comes from no where to ruin it. What's wrong with Noor Dubai the way it is? I don't think they had problems with advertisement revenues. If they do, why not turn the brilliant [not] Racing channel into a heritage channel since they are so into that. Don't think anyone will miss this channel. Not sure about the point of such awkward decision but am not surprised knowing how Al Shiekh think. All I know that it doesn't sound right and the channel will lose its main novelty factor. Lets hope they don't ruin it with too much falcon hunting, camel racing and Yolah. We already moved on from such ideas and if he wants a heritage channel why not make a new one? :D
Lets hope he comes back to reality and scrap the thought all together.
