I hear Al Jazeera English is opening a Chicago bureau

Word came to me Friday afternoon that the Al Jazeera English news service intends to open a Chicago bureau and has just hired a bureau manager—John Hendren, who for the past several years has been a Washington correspondent for ABC news. He previously covered the Pentagon for the Los Angeles Times and National Public Radio.

Al Jazeera English, launched by Al Jazeera in 2006, has had trouble finding a foothold in this country. WTTW, Channel 11, recently announced that it will start carrying it a few hours a week beginning October 31.

I'm trying to reach Hendren for comment.
