Al Jazeera International: Corporate profile

Al Jazeera International, the 24-hour English-language news and current affairs channel, headquartered in Doha, Qatar, will start broadcasting throughout the world later in 2006.

    Al Jazeera International is the world’s first global English language news channel to be headquartered in the Middle East.

    From this unique position, Al Jazeera International is destined to be the English-language channel of reference for Middle Eastern events, balancing the current typical information flow by reporting from the developing world back to the West and from the southern to the northern hemisphere.

    The channel gives voice to untold stories, promotes debate, and challenges established perceptions.

    With broadcasting centres in Doha, Kuala Lumpur, London and Washington DC and supporting bureaux world-wide, the channel will set the news agenda, bridging cultures and providing a unique grassroots perspective from underreported regions around the world to a potential global audience of over one billion English speakers.

    The station broadcasts news, current affairs, features, analysis, documentaries, live debates, entertainment features, business and sport.

    Building on Al Jazeera Arabic channel’s ground breaking developments in the Arab and Muslim world that have changed the face of news within the Middle East, Al Jazeera International is part of a growing network that is now extending this fresh perspective from the regional to global level through accurate, impartial and objective reporting.
