Richard B. Poore

Richard Beresford Poore OAM (born 22 July 1965) in Christchurch, New Zealand, and his wife Gilana, (an Australian citizen), were awarded OAMs For service to Australia by providing assistance to the victims of the bombings which occurred in Bali on 12 October 2002, and to their families.[1]

He is the son of Matt Poore, who played test cricket for New Zealand in the 1950s.

Richard Poore played an integral part in the launch of the first English-speaking News channel based in the middle east. Al Jazeera English was launched on 15 November 2006, with Poore and George Georgiou in transmission, to worldwide acclaim.
