Align your brand with captivating content shared among an engaged online audience!

About Us

The961 is the fastest growing and the most read English news/media site catered to Lebanese. We produce engaging content that the Lebanese audience want to consume.

What started as a blog promoting Lebanon just over 4 years ago, has now grown to the leading English media outlet for Lebanese covering over 70 topics between our News and Magazine sections.

The961 is an independent and nonprofit media outlet aimed at providing reliable news, countering propaganda and fake news, as well as digitizing Lebanese culture and heritage.

Ethics is everything for us. Our process is super clean; from how we charge, to the results we provide our partners – you can be assured it’s by the books. We model ourselves based on the kind of Lebanon we are striving for. If we feel something isn’t right, we won’t be afraid to walk away. Would you want to align your brand with anything else and risk the reputation you spent a lot of resources building?

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what our partners say:

It was a pleasure working with you and The961 team; Your professionalism is truly impressive. From gathering insights to accurately reporting information, the workflow was smooth. The cherry on top was your follow up to ensure all questions on social media are well tackled.

Proud of Lebanese talents like you!

Thank you on behalf of OMT.
