Ferguson Grand Jury Reaches Decision

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.
