Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Warner Music Invests in Rotana Music, Largest Mideast Record Label

Warner Music has invested in Rotana Music, the Middle East’s largest record label. Warner Music Group announced Tuesday that it bought a minority stake in Rotana, which is owned by Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince al-Waleed bin Talal.

The value of the deal was not announced. The Wall Street Journal reported before the announcement that the companies were nearing a deal that would have valued Rotana at close to $200 million.

As part of the deal, ADA Worldwide, Warner’s label services division, will distribute Rotana releases outside of the Middle East and North Africa.

Rotana is the Arab world’s largest record label, which has signed some of the biggest music stars in the Arab world. The prince has investments in several major Western companies, such as the Four Seasons hotel chain and Twitter.
