A story profiling Charleston Mayor Joe Riley will air on the Al Jazeera America network tonight beginning at 9 p.m.

Correspondent Joie Chen profiles Riley under the angle that he "has transformed a seedy southern city with a rich but faded history to an international destination, a gem that is at once historic and restored."

The network interviewed Riley several months ago as part of its series on accomplished U.S. mayors.

Al Jazeera began as a news source for the Arab world but has since branched out in its reach.

The piece will also post online at Aljazeeraamerica.com.
