ARISE NEWS was founded by Nigerian publisher Nduka Obaigbena, who dreamed of a global news channel connecting all the colours and shades of news around the globe. With a team of world-class journalists, behind-the-scenes and in front of the camera, ARISE NEWS will cover the compelling issues of our time in a way no one else can.
Mission: Every Culture Every Angle
We are a global media network reflecting the experiences of under-served communities, championing the voices of the African diaspora across all continents and engaging citizens of the world.
From its broadcast hubs in London, New York, Johannesburg and Lagos, ARISE NEWS will offer:
- Original Reporting
- Investigative Journalism
- Global Business Perspectives
- Aspirational Stories
- Independent and Balanced Coverage; and there will be:
- No State Funding or State Agenda
Soon to be broadcasting twenty four hours a day, seven days a week ARISE NEWS will be live on cable, satellite, mobile devices and the internet. Wherever and whenever there is major breaking news we will cover it aggressively, especially on the under-reported continent of Africa. We will take advantage of the latest technology and social media to bring real-time interaction with newsmakers and news events.
Our international focus is on global news and current affairs from a distinct perspective, while ARISE America will focus on U.S. news and current affairs through the eyes of communities currently ignored by mainstream media.
People across the globe are clamouring for news that affects their real lives. ARISE NEWS will be the first international news network specifically created to deliver that news. We will attract a global audience interested in emerging markets, developing countries and evolving politics. With headquarters and bureaux throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, we are poised to speak to our audience and give them a voice as well.
