Under the new agreement, News Corp will contribute its 50 percent stake in BME for a stake instead in the Moby Group, and also provide growth capital for Moby to realise its expansion plans. BME operates two Farsi-language channels, Farsi1 and Zemzemeh, which it claims now command a 45 million-strong Farsi speaking audience across Central Asia and the Middle East. Following the arrangement, BME will become a wholly-owned Moby subsidiary, with its current chief executive Zaid Mohseni continuing in his role. Saad Mohseni will remain as the chairman of Moby Group. Moby’s brands in Afghanistan include Tolo TV, Lemar TV, Arman FM, Arakozia FM, Afghan Scene Magazine, Tolonews and Kaboora Production.
