Alhurra had extensive coverage of the historic Gulf Cooperation Council summit being held in the U.S. including live coverage (with simultaneous translation) of President Obama’s remarks following the end of the conference on May 14. The network also broadcast the meeting between President Obama and the Saudi Crown Prince and the press conference held by Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communication Ben Rhodes. Alhurra had exclusive interviews with Ben Rhodes, as well as Joshua Baker, State Department Arabic Spokesperson and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).
Alhurra Television encourages Arab audiences to join the discussion on-air with two new dynamic and interactive shows launching this week, DardechTAG and You and Nablia. Both shows target the Arab youth and provide them an opportunity to have their voices heard and be a part of a dialogue about topics that are important to them.
