“A quantum leap happened in the station. I’m so happy to say that we have a fully equipped studio of our own now. By practicing and training, we now can produce our own reports and programs,” said Sameer Abu Rub, owner and director of Jenin Merkezi TV station in the West Bank city of Jenin.
In 2007, Sameer bought the station, which had suffered from having no professionally trained staff, equipment, or business strategy. The station had many obstacles to overcome in order to become a source of information for the community but Sameer was determined to make it work.
