Al Jazeera America will have correspondents in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
“It is critical for Al Jazeera America to have bureaus strategically placed throughout the U.S. so that we can cover the news from wherever it happens,” said Marcy McGinnis, Al Jazeera America’s senior vice-president of newsgathering. McGinnis says the correspondents will be tasked with reporting on “a wide range of local, state and regional stories within the context of what it means for the rest of the country.”
