Asharq News Network celebrated this week its third year launching its multiplatform economic news services, including Asharq News and Asharq Business with Bloomberg.
The 24/7 multiplatform Arabic news service broadcasts across the Arab world and beyond with news and an in-depth analysis reported through the lens of the economy.
The platform was launched in 2020 with an exclusive content agreement with Bloomberg Media, the business and financial information news leader, to broadcast Asharq Business with Bloomberg, airing content daily.
On the anniversary, Asharq News General Manager Nabeel al-Khatib said the company witnessed exceptional growth in audience figures from Asharq News and Asharq Business with Bloomberg.
"The successful growth is a testament to the quality of Asharq platforms, and the objective is to meet our audience demands by providing the information they need, in the places they want to view, to inform, inspire and empower decision making," Khatib said.
He indicated that the new free-to-view platforms, Asharq Documentary, Asharq Discovery, and Asharq audio offerings, are a natural new phase in the Asharq expansion journey.
Asharq News and Asharq Business with Bloomberg are the leading Arabic-language business news providers, appealing to business leaders and a younger generation that understands the importance of global economic, financial, and corporate information.
The exclusive content agreement provides access to Bloomberg's extensive financial and economic content, analysis, and market data.
The content is delivered through a dedicated television channel and multiple digital platforms, offering continuous insights into the people, events, organizations, and ideas that impact the MENA region and international markets.
The platform is unique in its exceptional variety of programs, rich in in-depth and accurate analyses.
Popular programs include the first business morning show in the Middle East, ' Assabah Maa Cyba,' 'East Indices,' 'Aswaq Asharq,' 'East-West,' and the 'Evening Session.'
Programming also includes two weekly business shows that cover energy and technology topics: 'Taqa Plus' and 'Tech Plus.'
Asharq News Network also covers specialized topics on dedicated social media accounts such as Asharq Business Sports, Asharq Business Crypto, Asharq Business Technology, and Asharq Business Green, focusing on climate change, sustainability, and green news and Asharq Bloomberg Businessweek.
Asharq News has established itself as a leading Arabic platform for the past three years. It is now the fastest-growing news channel on social media in the MENA region, with 50 million followers across all platforms.
