Alhurra started broadcasting on 14 February 2004 to 22 countries across the Middle East and North Africa. It has recognized itself as the third highest-rated pan-Arab news channel, superior viewership ratings for the BBC (English and Arabic), France 24 Arabic, RT Arabic, CCTV, CNNi, and Sky Arabia. In April 2004, an additional channel called Alhurra-Iraq was introduced, featuring most of the Alhurra content, with additional programming definitely directed at the Iraqi audience. It is also transmission on satellite and is available on terrestrial antennas throughout Iraq, including in Basra, and Baghdad. Alhurra-Iraq constantly attains higher ratings in Iraq than both Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya. The decision to launch Alhurra was impelled by frustration among U.S. government officials over perceived anti-American bias among the leading Arab television networks and the consequence these channels were having on Arab public opinion regarding the U.S. The powerful force behind the launch of Alhurra was Norman Pattiz, a media executive and founder and chairman of broadcast industry giant Westwood One. While helping as a member of the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), currently the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM), the U.S. federal agency that panels all foreign non-military radio and TV broadcasts, Pattiz supported strongly for the creation of a U.S.-funded television network specifically directed at Arab audiences.
