Seigenthaler’s hourlong show will air at 8 p.m. It will be followed by a magazine-style show anchored by Joie Chen called ‘‘America Tonight.’’

Ali Velshi, like Chen a CNN alum, will host a business-oriented show, ‘‘Real Money,’’ weekdays at 7 p.m. Antonio Mora will host ‘‘Consider This,’’ a current events talk show. ‘‘Late Night News,’’ for which no anchor has been listed, will be a second news summary at 11 p.m.

At 7:30 p.m., ‘‘The Stream’’ is described as a show that lets people connect and comment on the world through social media.

Al-Jazeera America announced two Sunday night shows: ‘‘Fault Lines’’ will investigate the impact of politics and policies on individual communities. ‘‘TechKnow’’ is about scientific discoveries.
