Al Nahar TV

Al Nahar TV started broadcasting in 2011. A satellite TV, it belongs to the Al Nahar Channels Network, which includes Al Nahar Al Youm, Al Nahar Drama, Al Nahar Cinema, and Al Nahar Noor. Al Nahar TV broadcasts political, economic, religious and artistic programs, entertainment, movies and TV series.

In 2016, businessman Alaa El-Kahki (link to profile) announced that his companies will invest 1.6 billion EGP (almost 89,500,000 USD) in the media sector. The same year, Al Nahar TV was supposed to merge with CBC Network to reduce the expenses of both networks and expend to the Arabian Gulf. But in May 2017, the owner of CBC Network, Future Media Holding, ended the merger "because of the difference in visions, channel management policies and media companies”. CBC Network was then bought by the Egyptian Media Company (link to the profile).

Al Nahar Network is currently headed by Amr Al-Laithi, who was appointed in September 2018. One of Egypt television and radio celebrity, Al-Laithi faced pressures in 2016 after he interviewed a contributor who was critical of the current Egyptian economic situation on his show “Wahed Men Al Nass” (One of the people). A former adviser of President Mohamed Morsi in 2012, Al-Laithi worked as a director of the third channel of the Egyptian Television (1988 –1991). He then became general manager of MBC channel in London (1991 - 1999). Al-Laithi began to present television programs with the program “Ikhtrak” (Breakthrough) in the Egyptian TV from 2001 to 2010.
