MUMBAI: Al Jazeera International, the proposed 24-hour English-language news and current affairs channel, has announced that the news anchor Teymoor Nabili will present its flagship Asia-Pacific current affairs show, 101 East.

Earlier this year Nabili was announced as also being the channel’s principal male news anchor in Kuala Lumpur alongside Veronica Pedrosa formerly of CNN International.

Broadcast from Kuala Lumpur, one of four regional broadcast centres strategically placed around the world in Doha, London and Washington DC, 101 East will be the region’s definitive discussion show for a local and global audience. Topical and authoritative, according to an official release, 101 East will often beat local broadcasters to local stories. From Mongolia to Australia, China to Indonesia, 101 East will report and reflect on major issues from health and wealth, politics and religion.

Nabili is winner of best news presenter/anchor at the Asian TV Awards in 2005, he has also received awards from the UK Royal Television Society, for coverage of the Utah Olympic bribery scandal, and from the New York Awards, for reporting on economic development in Malaysia.

Al Jazeera International director news & programmes Steve Clark said, “101 East will complement our broad range of programmes to bring viewers around the world the latest on the Asia Pacific region from within, reversing the flow of information with Asia calling the shots. Local viewers will be surprised at the uncensored coverage.”

Nabili brings 17 years of experience to Al Jazeera International: writing, producing, reporting and anchoring in television, radio and print. He joined Al Jazeera International from CNBC Asia in Singapore, where he has been anchor since 2001. Previous roles include news anchor for BBC Television in London, and anchor for European Business News.

Reporting highlights include covering the September 11th terrorist attack on New York City for Channel 4 News and the 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka for CNBC. Interview highlights include the Malaysia Prime Ministers Mahathir Mohammed and Ahmad Abdullah Badawi, Philippines President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, Singapore Prime Ministers Goh Chok Tong and Lee Hsien Loong.

As a commissioning house Al Jazeera International’s programmes will include material gathered from freelancers and independent companies all across the globe through a unique commissioning site: www.ajicommissioning.net
