24-Hour News Coverage: In April 2010, AAM established the first and only U.S. news bureaus for Dunya TV and Express News. Two all-Pakistani teams of journalists moved to Washington to run the bureaus for the next two years out of AAM’s headquarters, where they produced daily news and feature reports from around the U.S. for broadcast on their networks in Pakistan. By the close of the news bureau initiative in January 2013, the PIN correspondents had produced nearly 1,000 TV news reports and broadcasts for Pakistani television, and over 600 digital and newspaper print articles. Today, the Express and Dunya correspondents remain in Washington and continue to independently produce news reports and other content for their home networks.
PIN Journalism Fellows: PIN brings journalists from Dunya and Express to Washington for fellowships, where they produce programming for broadcast in Pakistan - including live weekly talk shows, interviews with high-level U.S. officials, and news documentaries on Pakistani communities in the U.S. Fellows also participate in think tank events, give presentations, and hold meetings with leading U.S. policy experts, expanding their networks while providing the Washington foreign policy community with insight on the state of Pakistani media and politics.
