Car prices + monkeypox receive top billing on the airwaves

Dominating the airwaves last night: Measures announced by the Consumer Protection Authority’s (CPA) yesterday to regulate prices of new cars led the conversation on Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 9:04) and Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 7:13). CPA head Ayman Hossam El Din told Masaa DMC that the decision was made to protect consumer rights as it regulates the market amid surging inflation.

A monkeypox outbreak abroad also got a lot of attention: Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 32:13), Salet El Tahrir (watch, runtime: 3:37), Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 2:59), and Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 7:18) all provided updates as the outbreak spread to new countries yesterday.

Also getting a mention: Egypt and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah winning the Premier League’s Golden Boot for the third time earned praise from Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 9:32) and Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 0:45). Salah shared the award with Tottenham’s Son Heung-min after ending the season tied on 23 goals.
