A Jewish news network that will air 24 hours a day is set to begin broadcasting.

The Jewish News One network, with studios based in Brussels, Tel Aviv, New York and Kiev, will go on the air Wednesday, according to reports. Studios are planned for Washington, Paris and London, as well.

Broadcasts will be in English, with plans to expand to Hebrew, French, Italian, Russian and German.

Businessmen Igor Kolomoisky and Vadim Rabinovich, the president and vice president of the European Jewish Union, own the station and have invested $5 million in its foundation. The owners hope to provide an alternative to Al Jazeera, Fox News and CNN, they have said.

“JN1 aims to introduce a new voice onto the increasingly crowded international news media landscape, complimenting the existing choices and offering international audiences a wide range of Jewish opinion and perspectives on key political, cultural and social themes,” the channel said in a mission statement on its Facebook page. “The channel’s independent ownership structure leaves it well-placed to offer an objective and original take on the current affairs themes impacting the world today.”
