HRH Princess Rym inaugurates Al Arabiya English relaunch
I am proud to announce that Al Arabiya News today relaunched the Al Arabiya English platform with the video service being at the heart of it, to enable viewers to get access to AA news and current affairs shows with full English subtitles within one hour of broadcast.
One of the main highlights of the relaunch is the state-of-the-art subtitling service that allows English-speaking audiences to follow Arabic news bulletins and programs broadcast by its parent TV channel.
- “Political lobbying: How can Arabs be more effective?” – with Dr. Adel al-Toraifi, Editor-in-Chief of the Asharq al-Awsat newspaper; Chris Doyle, the director of The Council for Arab-British Understanding (Caabu); Adrian Monck, managing director and head of communications and media at the World Economic Forum; and Hisham Melhem, Al Arabiya’s Bureau Chief in Washington, DC. – moderated by yours truly
- What does it take to be a regional spokesperson” – with Professor George Brock, Head of Journalism at City University in London; Khaled al-Maeena, Editor-in-Chief of the Saudi Gazette newspaper; Talal al-Haj, the New York/U.N. Bureau Chief for the Al Arabiya News Channel; and Charles Glass, a broadcaster, journalist and writer with a vast experience reporting on the Middle East – moderated by Arabiya presenter Rima Maktabi
I’d like to thank our general manager, Abdulrahman al Rashed, for his support and guidance, for without him this relaunch would have not been possible.
