Al Jazeera America (AJAM) is an American basic cable and satellite news television channel that was launched in the United States by the Qatar-based television network Al Jazeera Media Network on August 20, 2013. It was announced on January 2, 2013, along with the announcement that the network had purchased the American progressive media company Current TV, which had been struggling in ratings and announced in October 2012 that it was considering selling itself. Al Jazeera plans on shutting down the Current TV channel, keeping its off-air staff and possibly some programs and using the company's distribution network to broadcast Al Jazeera America. The channel directly competes with CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, and in certain markets,RT. This will be Al Jazeera's second entry into the U.S. television market, after the launch of beIN Sport in 2012.
The channel is headquartered and run from studios on the first floor of the Manhattan Center in New York City. It also has a total of 12 bureaus in Washington, D.C. at the Newseum, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Dallas, Denver, Miami, and San Francisco (the headquarters of Current TV). Al Jazeera Media Network also expects to increase its U.S.-based staff to a total of more than 300 employees as a result of Al Jazeera America. It was announced that the channel will have well-known veteran journalists, anchors, and producers.
