Alhurra’s Al Youm Celebrates Eid
Alhurra’s primetime magazine program Al Youm celebrates Eid live from Cairo’s Tivoli Dome today. Al Youm’s Egyptian fans can come out to watch the live show co-hosted by Engy Anwar and Amr Khalil. The broadcast will feature a performance by Egyptian singer Ramy Sabry who will sing his hit song Kelma.
In addition to the live Sept. 1st broadcast, Al Youm builds on the success of “Tell Us Your Story” campaign, where Egyptian viewers are invited to come out and record a two-minute interview about their life. The most compelling narratives will be selected and their story will appear on the program and Al Youm’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/alyoumshow). The campaign runs from Aug. 30-Sept. 5th.
Amr Khalil expressed his excitement to meet with his viewers again in Tivoli Dome. “It is even more special because we’re celebrating Eid. It is also a great opportunity to listen to new stories and offer the very best to our viewers.”
Engy Anwar remarked, “I am really looking forward to meeting with Al Youm’s audience for the second time. Having the show outside the studio always brings a whole new energy to the program.”
In June, Al Youm launched the “Tell Me Your Story” campaign from Cairo’s Tivoli Dome where the Al Youm co-hosts met with thousands of fans and listened to their stories. One of the stories that appeared on Al Youm was that of Ahmed Kamel, a university student who overcame a serious drug addiction and is now a therapist helping others overcome addiction.
