Sky News Arabia seeks Emirati talent

Sky News Arabia has launched a training programme aimed at encouraging more UAE nationals to join its staff at its Abu Dhabi studio, The National has reported. "The media profession hasn't traditionally been one of the most attractive careers for young Emirati professionals to pursue," said Adrian Wells, the launch director of Sky News Arabia. "It's much more likely that they would have been attracted into business, or maybe PR, or certainly engineering." The eight-day course, which is under way at Dubai Women's College, will be staged annually, he said.
