Thmanyah, the exciting and well-known Arabic podcast network and independent journalism platform in the Middle East and North Africa, welcomes 2024 with a bold initiative to revolutionize online content creation. As it ventures into a new technology-powered business, Thmanyah is poised to reshape the digital landscape, building an ecosystem that empowers content creators and enhances the Arabic content available on the internet.
Thmanyah’s award-winning platform is backed by a team of incredible content creators with extensive experience in producing a well known podcast shows such as Funjan, Socrates, and Swalif Business. Their reach extends beyond podcasts to newsletters and documentaries, captivating hundreds of millions of viewers and listeners on a weekly basis.
A main part of Thmanyah’s new initiative is “Radio Thmanyah,” a mobile application designed to empower creators in hosting, promoting, and monetizing their podcast shows. This application reimagines the podcasting experience by introducing profiles and social interactions, creating a dynamic space for highly engaged podcast listeners. Users can easily import their podcast libraries from existing platforms or explore the extensive catalog of international and regional podcasts.
Thmanyah’s general system includes the Thmanyah Ad Network, a platform dedicated to helping creators effectively monetize their content. By bridging the gap between creators and advertisers, Thmanyah aims to foster a thriving community of content producers who can turn their passion into a source of income. This initiative emphasizes the company’s commitment to supporting creators in their journey to financial sustainability.
Founded in 2016, Thmanyah gained further momentum in 2021 when the Saudi Research and Media Group (SRMG) acquired 51% of its shares. This strategic partnership marked a significant milestone in Thmanyah’s evolution. Alongside this development, Thmanyah.com was relaunched as a platform for content creators to share newsletters and articles, expanding the company’s reach and impact.
Abdulrahman Abu Malih, the visionary founder and CEO of Thmanyah, expressed his enthusiasm for the company’s remarkable journey. He stated, “Over the past few years, we have created a library of premium Arabic content that has no rival online, and we want that growth to prosper together with content creators across the Arab world. Today, we are not just talking about our own transformation, but we are building tools that can fulfill this vision from our experiences and learnings across hosting, marketing, and monetization, so content creators can focus on elevating the quality of their production and sustain it.”

By constantly innovating and supporting content creators, Thmanyah is set to influence the future of online content in the Middle East and North Africa. It offers a platform where creativity flourishes, and passion transforms into a fulfilling pursuit.
