KNN is primarily a Kurdish-language channel, its main remit is local and international current-affairs, but KNN also reports extensively on the economy, politics, sport, culture and the arts. News updates are supplemented by in-depth interviews with prominent Kurdish politicians and thinkers, and KNN also produces a vide variety of documentaries and local-interest programmes, as well as adapting foreign programming for Kurdish viewers. The channel is headquartered in Sulemaniah, Iraqi Kurdistan, and employs over 160 people there and in its offices across the region.
