Associated Press (AP) has launched AP Middle East Extra, a new service offering more unique video content centred on significant news in the Middle East. Created for media organisations in the region, as well as those outside with a strong interest in the MENA region, AP Middle East Extra is designed to meet customer needs in this significant growth area for the media industry.
The selected stories and features are regionally focused and cover the news, human-interest, cultural, economic and technology stories. AP Middle East Extra also includes reports, interviews and perspectives on international news for Middle East audiences and, alongside AP’s existing global video news service, adds depth to its coverage of the region. Content for AP Middle East Extra will be provided by a team of video journalists based across the region and five stories, with both Arabic and English scripts, will be delivered daily between Sunday and Thursday, as well as four special features every Friday.
AP Middle East Extra is available for delivery through AP Media Port and AP Video Hub. For more information visit www.ap.org.
