France 24

July 21, 2006 at 1:15 am | Posted in France 24, General Information | 6 Comments

A little over ten days ago, the French networks TF1 and France 2 announced the name of the new French State-funded international news channel: France 24 or F24.

France 24 is expected to start broadcasting in December 2006 in French and English. The new channel will be received in Europe, Africa and the Middle-East with plans to extend its coverage to the East coast of the United States (to reach Washington D.C. and New York). F24 could also be translated into Arabic in the future.

This week, France 24 signed a contract with Thomson, which will design and build the broadcast and technology infrastructure of the French network. The three-year deal is evaluated at 30 million Euros.

France 24 has a staff of around 170 bilingual journalists in Paris, as well as correspondents in bureaus in London, New York, and other cities (a full list is not yet available).

  4. Hi Joe,
    I was looking for the same info and someone managed to give it to me.
    It was difficult to find it, I was looking for a while
    Send me your email and I will send it to you.
    I don’t think it is a good idea to put online, they might not appreciate to see their email spread online
