NEW YORK • Former NBC News anchor John Seigenthaler will host Al-Jazeera America's central nightly newscast when the network goes on the air next Tuesday.
The new network on Wednesday began filling in some of the details about what its schedule will look like. Over the past couple of months, it has announced the hiring of several U.S. television veterans for the launch.
Seigenthaler's hour-long show will air at 8 p.m. Eastern time. It will be followed by a magazine-style show anchored by Joie Chen called "America Tonight."
