Series - Inside Story

Inside Story is a daily news program aired by Al Jazeera English, offering analysis and commentary on recent news events. Modeled after Mā Warā’ al-Khabar (Arabic: ما وراء الخبر; Behind the News) on Al Jazeera (Arabic), the program provides in-depth discussions with guests from across the globe.

Originally launched in November 2006 alongside the inception of Al Jazeera English, the program broadcasts from Al Jazeera’s studios in Doha, with rotating hosts depending on the topic covered.

In August 20, 2013, an American version of the show debuted on Al Jazeera America, with Libby Casey initially serving as the host. Ray Suarez, formerly of PBS Newshour, later took over as the full-time host. Filmed in Washington D.C. at Al Jazeera’s DC hub studios, the program shares a set with the Al Jazeera English program UpFront, previously using the set of Inside Story Americas.

The format of the American version mirrors that of the original Al Jazeera English program, albeit with a dedicated host.
