Inside Story is a daily news programme broadcast by Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera America.

It broadcasts from Al Jazeera's studios in Doha, with an anchor who is joined by guests from around the globe. The programme provides analysis and commentary on recent news stories and is modeled after Mā Warā’ al-Khabar (Arabic: ما وراء الخبر‎; Behind the News) on the sister channel, Al Jazeera (Arabic).[1]

The programme began airing in November 2006 alongside the launch of Al Jazeera English.[2]


In December 2011, the network launched three spinoffs. Two related to the United States:

Inside Story Americas - and, formerly, Inside Story: US 2012 - has a rotation of Washington D.C anchors.

The third programme:

  • Inside Syria, was launched to cover the Civil War in Syria.

It uses the same set as another former programme: Inside Iraq, hosted by Jasim Al-Azzawi.

American Version[edit]

An American version of the show launched on Al Jazeera America on August 20, 2013 on the channel's debut and was first hosted by Libby Casey. The show is now hosted full-time by Ray Suarez.
