ANN Arab News Network
Description
ANN is owned by Rifaat al-Assad, the former vice president of Syria, and uncle of the current President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad. The two are in sharp disagreement, with the Paris-based Rifaat al-Assad allegedly having claimed right of succession after Hafiz al-Assad, who had exiled him after he attempted to seize power. ANN was started in the late 1990s by Rifaat and his immediate family, as part of a media network designed to promote their political positions vis-à-vis the Syrian government and other Arabic countries, as Hafiz al-Assad's poor health began to raise the issue of succession. The channel states its goal to be a democratic reform in the framework of a Baathist Syria.[citation needed]
The station broadcast daily English news from November 2004 to March 2006, but since then has been broadcasting solely in Arabic. The desire to remove the programme reflected a change in management. Rifaat's son, Ribal al-Assad, is currently Director of the London Bureau. He decided to cancel the English programming due what he perceived to be the lack of an audience for it.
