BBC Asian Network is a British Asian radio station owned and operated by the BBC. The station’s target audience is people “with an interest in British Asian lifestyles”, especially British Asians between the ages of 18 and 34. The station has production centres in London (Broadcasting House) and Birmingham (The Mailbox).
In mid 2017, BBC Asian Network’s management was merged with BBC Radio 1Xtra. Head of BBC Asian Network Mark Strippel was given joint control of both stations.
The station now broadcasts mainly in English, but has retained Sunday evening shows in South Asian languages. BBC Asian Network covers only the Indian subcontinent, with the rest of the continent – such as Japan, China, Hong Kong – not covered by the station.
The station’s output consists largely of music and talk programmes. On Fridays at 4:00 p.m., the station broadcasts The Official Asian Music Chart, compiled by the Official Charts Company and based on sales and streams across a seven-day period.
