Bloomberg Going ‘Inside the Kingdom’

Bloomberg TV will televise a one-hour special at 6 PM this evening on Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, a Middle East media mogul and the largest investor in News Corp. not named Murdoch.

Erik Schatzker will host the program.

Al-Waleed talks to Bloomberg about his future plans for his media company Rotana, as well as his desire to launch an Arabic news channel to compete with Al Zazeera and Al Arabiya.

As one might imagine, Al-Waleed’s life is quite unlike most people’s, and the special will follow him to his desert camp, where he ”makes deals surrounded by falcons, camels and satellite hook-ups.”

It will also have “exclusive footage of the Prince praying, bicycle-riding on the streets of Riyadh, practicing archery and other sports as well as hosting Saudi citizens at his desert camp for majlis.”

More information, after the jump.
