Sky News Arabia, the 24 hour Arabic language multi-platform breaking news service launching in spring 2012, has unveiled six of its presenters who are now on-board and immersed in rehearsals. The presenters, drawn from across the Arab world, are the latest additions to the Sky News Arabia team as the channel continues, on track, to its launch. All of the channel’s presenters have now been selected with further announcements expected in the coming weeks.
Nart Bouran, Head of Sky News Arabia, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be able to announce our first batch of presenters. Each one of our presenters brings a wealth of talent and experience, and we are excited to welcome them to the Sky News Arabia family.
“The presenting line up is crucial for any channel. As a voice from the Arab world to the Arab world, representing a vast range of cultures and backgrounds, it was vital that we did our homework. We were determined to build a strong team with a great mix of well known faces as well as fresh young talent. I am confident we have achieved this. “
