Launched in 1996, Al Jazeera Arabic was the first independent news channel in the Arab world dedicated to providing comprehensive news, and live debate.
The network challenged established narratives and gave a global audience an alternative voice—one that put the human being back at the center of the news agenda and quickly made it one of the world’s most influential news networks.
Since then, it has added new channels and services whilst maintaining the independent, pioneering spirit that defined its character. Each subsidiary in the Al Jazeera Media Network 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.
It’s a responsibility shared by every employee at the Al Jazeera Media Network. From our headquarters, to the broadcast centers, and at more than 70 bureaus around the world, we strive to deliver content that captivates, informs, inspires and entertains.
Al Jazeera is where we tell the stories that deserve to be told. Where reaching deeper is just the beginning. Where independence overcomes oppression, and integrity and respect matter above everything else. It’s a place that lights the darkest shadows and gives the voiceless a voice.
Our mission is to deliver captivating content to the world, which informs, inspires and entertains, through our talented, creative and spirited people. We reach deeper, broader, and closer with our content, platforms and interactions. By respecting the diversity and humanity of the world, we’re rebalancing global media, giving a voice to the voiceless.
