CNN Reacts to BBC Arabic Channel Launch
Could this mean a launch of a CNN Arabic network in the future? From asharqalawsat.com:
CNN: “CNN has served an Arabic audience for a number of years with
cnnarabic.com as part of its portfolio of award-winning and top-rated digital
services. We continue to investigate possible TV joint ventures in the region
but have nothing to announce at this time.
In the meantime, we have been confirmed as the leading English language
international news channel in the region according to the latest available data
(Middle Eastern Business Elite Survey 2006), which points to the appetite in the
region for our existing service.” - CNN SPOKESMAN
