LONDON — Sky News Arabia, the 24-hour Arabic language multi-platform breaking news service, aims to go live May 6, 2012.
The channel, a joint venture between Abu Dhabi Media Investment Corporation (ADMIC) and satcaster British Sky Broadcasting, promises “a new horizon” for news reporting across the Arab world.
Sky News Arabia channel chief Nart Bouran said the 24-hour Arabic news channel will offer the MENA region “a fresh approach to television news with an independent editorial mandate at the heart of everything we do.”
Birthed more than two years ago, the channel gathers together almost 400 journalists, reporters, presenters, producers and broadcast technicians and will air live from a state of the art studio in Abu Dhabi.
The news broadcaster will have 12 bureaus across the region as well as in London and Washington, and will draw upon Sky News’ network of bureaus around the world for international coverage.
