Gérard Saint-Paul has been nominated to replace Ulysse Gosset for the position of managing director in charge of news and programming, France 24 announced yesterday.
Saint-Paul will represent the French public television France Televisions on the directing board. Alain de Pouzilhac and Jean-Yves Bonsergent also seat on the board with de Pouzilhac at the head and Bonsergent representing the private company TF1.
Saint-Paul was already working for France 24 since April as the managing news editor overseeing all journalists working for the network.

De Pouzilhac is also confirming that a third feed will be created for France 24 in July 2007. The third feed will broadcast France 24 mainly in Arabic with some programming in French and English.
