Al Jazeera, the prominent international news network, wanted to step boldly into the digital age, so they created a broadcast outlet for social media. To support Al Jazeera’s mission of giving a ‘voice to the voiceless,’ Grey Horse created The Stream, a daily show and digital community for broadcast news.
The Stream launched on the day Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan and featured the first and only interview with the man who witnessed it. This landmark story led to a revolution in online news programming for Al Jazeera English during the Arab Spring, and The Stream was nominated for the 2011 Emmy Award for Breaking News and won Webby People’s Choice Award in 2012 and Royal Television Society’s Most Innovative Programme in 2012 and the Gracie Award for Outstanding News Talk Show in 2013.
