Ma’an Network launches first live TV news program with partnership from SFCG
Ma’an Network will broadcast its first live news program tomorrow! The broadcast will be the first of its kind in the Palestinian Territory. The live news program will be broadcast five days a week — Saturday thru Wednesday — beginning at 8:00pm.
Ma’an will broadcast program from their Bethlehem studio and it will be anchored by a team of young female and male journalists.
Ma’an, which means ‘together’ in Arabic, was founded in 2002 as a non-profit media organization, with the aim of strengthening independent Palestinian media. The network serves to build the capacity of Palestinian media and lead the way to developing it as a force for change. Ma’an has news bureaus in Ramallah, Nablus, Gaza and Haifa that are fiber-linked and delivers news in Arabic, English and Hebrew.
Search for Common Ground has been Ma’an’s lead partner, working with the network for the past nine years, helping to develop an independent news network in the Palestinian Territory.
