Al Jazeera America Plans ‘America Tonight’ Nightly News Program

Al Jazeera America has pulled back the curtain on one of its new signature programs: a primetime current affairs magazine, “America Tonight.” The one-hour program will air at 9 PM nightly, and will be executive produced by former CNN EP and executive Kim Bondy.

Adam May, Lori Jane Gliha and Christof Putzel will be three of the correspondents reporting for the program.

“America Tonight” will originate from The Newseum in Washington DC, in the space formerly occupied by ABC News’ “This Week.” The series “will present in-depth segments each night on the economy, government, education, healthcare and the environment, and include breaking news.” the channel says.

More information, after the jump.

ABC’s ‘This Week’ Moving Out of the Newseum, Al Jazeera America Moving In

The studio space at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. is changing hands, Broadcasting & Cable’s John Eggerton reports. Next month, ABC’s “This Week” will vacate the space and return to the network’s Washington bureau, and Al Jazeera America will move in.

“This Week” is hosted by George Stephanopoulos in New York a majority of the time. ABC’s D.C. bureau will be home to Washington-based guests and for the one week a month that Martha Raddatz guest-hosts the show.

Al Jazeera America, which B&C reports will have both office space and editing facilities in the Newseum, is preparing for its launch later this year. The network recently hired Adam May, a local reporter from Baltimore, as a D.C.-based national correspondent.

Al Jazeera America Adds Adam May as National Correspondent

Adam May will start as a national correspondent at Al Jazeera America in June. He will be based in Al Jazeera America’s Washington, D.C. bureau.

May comes from WJZ in Baltimore, where he has been an anchor and reporter for 10 years. TVSpy has more on his career in local news.

“It was a tough decision, especially saying goodbye to our viewers who have been so loyal over the last few years,” May told David Zurawik of The Baltimore Sun. “I now consider many of them friends, and I hope when they still see me walking around Baltimore, they’ll come up and say hi.”
