Salameh Nematt served as Managing Editor for the joint operation between July, 2002 and June, 2003. His responsibilities included recruiting staff, designing and implementing the editorial plan and strategy for the news integration venture between the two media entities.

For a brief period in 1999, he served as Head of the Strategy Unit at Jordan's Royal Court, an advisory post for the king. He resigned two months after taking the job due to policy differences with the government over democratic reforms . Returned shortly afterwards to Al-Hayat.

He was Chief Political correspondent of the English language "Jordan Times" daily and Al-Rai leading Arabic language Jordanian Daily.

Throughout his journalistic carreer, he has contributed to several Arabic, English- and other foreign language publications including The Economist, Middle East Magazine, Jane's Defence Weekly, Mideast Mirror, Die Zeit, dpa, Newsweek, BBC World Service (English), UPI, Oxford Analytica, as well as international broadcast media such as BBC World, ITV News, ABC news, PBS, CBC radio and TV, Al-Jazeera, Al-Arabiya and Al-Hurra, and numerous other media.

He also worked as regional correspondent for the BBC Arabic Service TV, in addition to his work as Bureau Chief for Al-Hayat and Correspondent for BBC Arabic Service radio.

Over the past 20 years, his work involved reporting on and analyzing developments related to the Iran-Iraq war, the 1990-1991 Iraq invasion of Kuwait and the second Gulf war, and the Arab-Israeli peace process.
