Television host, author and producer Sir David Frost, the only person to have interviewed the last seven Presidents of the United States and the last six Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom, has joined Al Jazeera International. “We are thrilled to have Sir David Frost join Al Jazeera International,” says Nigel Parsons, managing director of Al Jazeera International. “He’s a one-man international broadcasting phenomenon and our viewers can look forward to the substance and quality that have marked his distinguished career.” Speaking about his new job, Frost says: “This is a great adventure – the first and perhaps the only brand-new international TV news network for the 21st Century. Most of the television I have done over the years has been aimed at British and American audiences. This time, while our target is still Britain and America, the excitement is that it also targets the six billion other inhabitants of the globe. As someone said, a new show for a new channel for the new century.” Al Jazeera International, headquartered in Qatar, will launch in the Spring of 2006. With broadcasting centres placed across the world in Doha, Kuala Lumpur, London, and Washington D.C. and dozens of news bureaux worldwide, the channel promises to bring English speakers across the world a fresh perspective on world news and current affairs. Frost will broadcast from Al Jazeera International’s London broadcast centre.
