Al Jazeera America today announced its first four news anchors, including Richelle Carey, former weekday anchor for CNN’s HLN. Carey will join Jonathan Betz, Morgan Fogarty and Del Walters presenting live news throughout the day from Al Jazeera America’s studio in New York City. Betz is a former field reporter and fill-in anchor at the ABC affiliate station in Dallas. Fogarty was the main 10 PM anchor at the CW affiliate in Charlotte, NC. Walters spent more than two decades as an anchor at the ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C. Back in January, Al Jazeera coughed up a reported $500 million to buy Al Gore’s little-watched Current TV and replace it with Al Jazeera America, which is scheduled to launch next month, funded by the government of Qatar.
