Rotana to launch Moroccan TV channel

RotanaABN – The Middle East’s largest music label has announced plans to launch an entertainment TV channel in Morocco in 2016.

Rotana Group is primarily owned by Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, with News Corp and 21st Century Fox holding roughly 19%.

The Le3560 news website reports that Rotana wants access to both Moroccan music artists and the country’s advertising market, which generates MAD 1 billion (approximately US$100 million) in revenue per year.

Rotana Morocco programming will be broadcast from the media group’s headquarters and will create no new jobs.
