The station with help of its KSA community started its test web cast in July 2004 by adopting learn and implement methodology and by the grace of Almighty since then station has produced contents of over few hundred hours, he added. He told the reporters that the concept of RCP aligns to the vision of Nesma which indicates that the next revolution on internet will be the delivery of live multimedia contents in all formats and CP would like to be the front runner in adopting this medium to deliver contents to its community which is spread in 67 countries. Talking about the programming of the radio he said that the station will web cast educational, entertainment, informative programming and would not promote contents that are outside the cultural values of an Islamic society and heritage of Pakistan. When asked to name few, he said number of popular shows such Cooking with Bj, a program that is designed to teach cooking, talk show “Zarori Baat”, in each episode a professional is invited to help the community, will continue and adding to our regular programming we will be starting a new program on learning Arabic for children, health shows, Quiz shows for students and many more. He invited community to come forward and join the RCP / Nesma team to produce contents that are essential to build a healthy virtual culture. He also announced that businesses of Saudi Arabia are invited to enjoy free advertisement slots that are available in all programs that will be web cast from the station.

The operation expenses are mostly paid by team members and rarely medium of advertisement is used to promote its services on the internet.
