At the end of 2014, Al Jazeera Media Networks, one of the world’s largest broadcast TV news networks, launched AJ+ with a vision to build a global digital video operation from the ground
They needed to launch with a fair amount of content and maintain an aggressive production schedule. With the help of Storyhunter, they recruited a top notch freelance network and streamlined their global freelancer payments.
Soon, AJ+ moved all freelancer productions to Storyhunter, and over 8 new units in the company began using Storyhunter as their freelancer management system, including Spanish-, French- and Arabic-Language channels. AJ+ is now one of the most viewed Facebook news channels on the planet.
“The question is no longer who you have on the ground, it’s what do you want to cover.”
