Inside Story is a daily news programme broadcast by Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera America. The programme provides analysis and commentary on recent news stories and is modeled after Behind the News on the sister channel, Al Jazeera (Arabic). The original Al Jazeera English version of the programme broadcasts from Al Jazeera's studios in Doha, with an anchor who is joined by guests from around the globe. The hosts rotate depending upon the topic being covered. The programme began airing in November 2006 alongside the launch of Al Jazeera English.
This American version of the show launched on Al Jazeera America on August 20, 2013 on the channel's debut and was first hosted by Libby Casey who still acts as the fill in host. The show is now hosted full-time by Ray Suarez formerly of PBS Newshour. The show is based in Washington D.C. and is filmed at Al Jazeera's DC hub studios on a set which it currently shares with the Al Jazeera English programme UpFront. It was originally shot on the former set of Inside Story Americas. The show's format is identical to that of the original Al Jazeera English programme with the exception that it has a full time host.
