The station broadcast daily English news from November 2004 to March 2006, but since then had been broadcasting solely in Arabic
until 2014. The desire to remove the programme reflected a change in management. Ribal al-Assad
, took over as director of the London Bureau from 2006 to 2010. He decided to cancel the English programming due what he perceived to be the lack of an audience for it.
However, since the latest change of management in 2010, the new proprietor, Siwar al Assad, has decided to reintroduce English Language programming alongside the Arabic. In 2014 Siwar launched a program modeled on the BBC's Hardtalk called The English Hour
which is recorded in London broadcast at peak time and subtitled in Arabic.
