TOWARDS IMPROVING KUWAIT TELEVISION NEWS: A CRITICAL VIEW

Auther : Abdul Basit A. Saleh

 

Kuwait Television newscasts have passed through a great change in both quantity and quality during a period of 40 years, which is the age of television broadcasting in the State of Kuwait. In particular, Kuwait TV has been broadcasting its news programs since its first establishment in 1961. It broadcasts four daily newscasts, three on Channel 1 and one on Channel 2. Moreover, Kuwait Television can be received clearly throughout the Arab World via Kuwait’s Satellite Channel, which started broadcasting in 1992. However, despite the steady increase in the coast and time allowed for news coverage on Kuwait TV, news programming occupies a low position in terms if Kuwait’s audience preferences.

The existence of news content has been evident since the early stages of emerging mass media. However, the task of gathering and distributing news is not easy. Indeed, the process whereby news and information is distributed to viewers via television are a result of many factors which may vary according to a nation level of progress, method of finance and nature of control over its television broadcasting.

This study aims at examining the news service of Kuwait TV, which suffers a lack of audience viewership, then attempts to point out ways in which Kuwait’s newscast can succeed in attracting more of its viewers. Specifically, this study presents a critical view, based upon the researcher’s close observations on newscasts viewed on Kuwait Television during October and November of 1998 and provides several ideas, which can be used as a basis for improvement.
