Muslim News Magazine is a powerful media platform that provides positive images of Muslim-American culture through movies, documentaries, short films, news, music, comedy, visual/performing arts and the Islamic faith. More than just an Internet network, MNM is a social networking channel that provides a Muslim American voice to the world of television, entertainment and news.
“We want to provide programming that gives the world a real-life look at Muslim American culture and history,” states Lon Muqaddin, V.P. of Operations for the new network. “MNM-TV offers programs that highlight Muslim life in America like never before. From original series to award-winning documentaries, our network gives English-speaking audiences an unprecedented look at the amazing diversity of Muslims in the United States."
Muslim News Magazine began as a Islamic news organization in 1991. Over the years, MNM has provided Islamic media content to major broadcasters such as CNN, C-SPAN, PBS, Bridges TV and others. The company has produced several award-winning documentaries including "City of Muslims", "Raising Islam in America" and our critically acclaimed film, "8 Centuries of Muslims in America".
The Muslim News Magazine Television Network was launched in 2013 by its parent company, BAIT-CAL Worldwide. The channel streams Islamic-based television programming 24 hours a day and targets today's Muslim-American viewing audience. MNM-TV delivers award-winning films, documentaries and original series that focus on the amazing history and modern culture of Muslims in America.
"Our challenge has never been greater," stated Muqaddin. "The next decade will be absolutely critical for defining Muslims and the religion of Islam. The media will play a very large role and so will Muslim News Magazine TV. We want to put the diverse cultural identity of Muslims in America on display for the entire world to see."
The new channel will also provide advertisers access to numerous potential customers once nearly unreachable. BAIT-CAL believes the potential reach of MNM-TV is unlimited and hopes the network will eventually penetrate the cable television market.
"Our goal is to become America's premier Islamic media platform," added Muqaddin. "MNM-TV will connect businesses and advertisers with the estimated $100 billion Muslims spend each year."
BAIT-CAL is also hoping the Muslim producers and filmmakers will want to take advantage of the MNM platform to promote their works. The network is now accepting submissions for television specials, reality shows, movies and film shorts that depict America's diverse Muslim culture.
“All too often we find Islam being defined by others in the media," stated Imam Abdul Karim Hasan, Executive Director of Bilal Learning Center in Los Angeles. “Broadcast technology is changing fast and Muslim-Americans must strive to be at the forefront. We believe this network can become a major media force in America and serve as a catalyst for social change by presenting the true image of Muslim American lifestyle, culture and history to a global viewing audience.”
