Mideast Christians News (MCN) — the First Professional News Agency to Cover All Christian Minorities in the Middle East
WASHINGTON, March 20, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Mideast Christian News (MCN), the first professional and independent News Agency specialized in covering Christian minorities in the Middle East, was launched officially on January 7, 2013.
The local media hides and distorts reality, while international Media fails to report regularly, as they are focusing on the regional conflicts. Hence the severe need for professional coverage especially in the New Islamic Era that’s starting in the region. MCN’s aim is to fill this gap.
MCN provides timely news, cover stories, reports, interviews, photos and videos, both in English, targeting the international media, Governmental Organizations and NGOs, and Arabic, targeting local and regional media.
MCN has its own team of professional correspondents, journalists, photographers, cameramen and editors in the Middle East. While the international main office is located in Washington D.C.
MIDEAST CHRISTIAN NEWS is an independent agency, neither associated nor affiliated to any local, regional, international organization or group.
MCN was founded by Dr. William Weessa, who has extensive experience in developing and managing news media services. In 1997, he established the Arab language programming for the multilingual European television (Euro News). He directed the Arabic-language news service at Radio France International (RFI) (1992-1997).
In 1979 he received a PhD in Communications from the Sorbonne University.
