Egypt: Al Hurra Exposure

The exposure to US based Al Hurra channel and Radio Sawa increased in Egypt from 70% last year to 92% this year. Al Hurra received tremendous negative media coverage and skepticism upon its inauguration. The Big Pharaoh blog gives credit to Al Hurra's correspondent in Egypt, Tarek El Shami for this improvement in the channel exposure.
