About Al Jazeera Media Network
Launched in 1996, Al Jazeera was the first independent news channel in the Arab world dedicated to providing comprehensive news and live debate. It challenged established narratives and gave a global audience an alternative voice, one that puts the human being at the center of the news agenda, and quickly making it one of the world’s most influential news networks. Since then, it has added new channels and services while maintaining the independent and pioneering spirit that defined its character. Each subsidiary follows the same principles and values that inspire it to be challenging and bold, and provide a ‘voice for the voiceless’ in some of the most underreported places on the planet. From its headquarters in the Middle East, to the broadcast centres in more than 70 bureaus around the world, Al Jazeera strives to deliver content that captivates, informs, inspires and engages.
