Al Jazeera Children’s Channel joins Arab Broadcast Union

DOHA • Al Jazeera Children’s Channel, the first Pan Arabic edutainment channel, has signed the membership agreement to the Arab States Broadcast Union (ASBU). This remarkable milestone came as a resolution of the Union 27th Ordinary Session of the General Assembly held in Tunis on January 11, 2008.

The membership signing ceremony took place during the visit of the Union’s delegation to JCC’s headquarter in Doha, between Salah El Dine Maaoui, ASBU Director General and Mahmoud Bouneb, Executive General Manager of JCC.

“Al Jazeera Children’s Channel’s membership to the Union is an added value to Arab children media. I believe that JCC has proven to be a considerable edutainment tool for children. We are certain that JCC will play a very active role at ASBU,” said Maaoui. Bouneb said: “We are pleased to join the ASBU. We hope the participation of the young and active Al Jazeera Children’s Channel brings forward and develops the children Arab media industry. Our main objective is to work hand in hand with ASBU in order to regulate the free to air stream of inappropriate content breaching our cultural boundaries and values, and reaching the minds of our families and children,” Bouneb added.
