What's On VRL
The Morning Crew with Anthony and Sally
The Virgin Radio Morning Crew has been the loudest, craziest and most upbeat show in Lebanon since the station launched in May 2013 taking morning radio by storm. The Virgin Radio Morning Crew offers a unique radio style that is not only extremely interactive but also highly entertaining.
Anthony Salame provides the provocative humor of the show that sets the lighthearted mood and also fires up our listeners! Sally Geha jumps in as the witty and charming cohost who keeps him grounded. Sally started her radio career giving Traffic and Weather updates on the morning show in earlier years while international comedian Anthony has been there since the show kicked off in 2013.
The show is full of the latest hits, amazing giveaways, relatable and hilarious segments such as “Why Would You Do That”, Hollywood News and odd things happening on the big stage of the world.
The Morning Crew with Anthony and Sally airs before the roosters even crow at 6 AM sharp every weekday morning. The dynamic between the hilarious comedian and the funky Sally makes for an amazing chaotic yet chilled blend. It’s four straight hours of hilarious diversions away from the morning traffic and daily routines.
Anthony and Sally enrich the show with their international backgrounds’ fusion; both being Australian with Lebanese routs and having lived in various countries around the world fill the studio with charm and fun relatable on a universal level. The Lebanese and worldwide public are kept entertained in the best of ways by these partners in crime who have become the only and best way to kick off the day!
Tune in every day from 6 AM to 10 AM and catch our Morning Crew with Anthony and Sally.
The Drive with Zaina and Boudy
The Drive with Zaina combines all age groups in one of the highest listenership hours to help you get through traffic a little bit easier.
Zaina El Hage, kicked off her career at Virgin Radio Lebanon with what was initially supposed to be a one month internship. A happy mistake then led to her very first radio commercial, where she was then given a spot on air.
Lebanon’s listeners were first introduced to Zaina on The Morning Show, as she updated you on your daily Traffic and Weather. This then included giving listeners a daily challenge with “Midday Madness” to fulfill between the hours of 12 and 1 o’clock. The purpose of the Midday Madness campaign was to show how daring and adventurous you can be to win.
After that she moved on to presenting the “VRL Top 10” as well as Midday Live between the hours of 11 AM and 2 PM; a highly interactive show engaging with listeners, taking requests and sharing some fun news.
As of October 13th 2014, Zaina introduced the very first show presented solo by a female host. She has been keeping you entertained throughout your drive and has taken over the airwaves from 3 till 6pm with The Drive with Zaina, the peak of listenership during the ride back home for both, students and employees. The show is packed with all the latest hits, interaction with listeners, games and giveaways.
Fast forward to June 6, 2017, Zaina was joined by now co-host Boudy Boustany. Boudy is the lead vocalist in the band The JLP Show, which was part of the Virgin Radio Live team. After coming in for a meeting at the Virgin Radio offices, his voice soon led him to be part of the team. He started with a few links to introduce tracks on the weekends and then joined Zaina two days a week to later become the cohost on The Drive with Zaina, bringing with him his guitar for a few musical sessions.
Tune in every day from 3 to 7 PM to catch the madness with Zaina and Boudy.
