    Al Jazeera plans US expansion

    Al Jazeera plans US expansion
    By Chris Forrester


    Al Jazeera America says it will considerably expand its locally produced transmission hours, and will hire new staff. Al Jazzera America is operating out of the old ‘Current TV’ headquarters and space is tight, but interim CEO Ehab Al Shihabi says the all-news channel will expand into new Manhattan premises within the next 18 months.

    Extra investment will also go into a new breakfast programming block, plus dedicated segments for culture and sports.

    Al Shihabi said that an agreement signed last week with Time Warner Cable will take Al Jazeera America into a total of more than 50 million homes, but this is still well short of the 100+ million homes enjoyed by CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.
