While unveiling its logo, France 24 officials announced that 162 journalists have been hired and will start working next week.
France 24 earlier said it would hire 170 journalists for its bilingual newsroom. There are no indication that new hires will be made in the near future.
The journalists come from 27 different countries, are bilingual (English/French) and will be responsible for one third of France 24’s reports (the two remaining thirds coming from partnerships with France 24’s partners and shareholders).
The newsroom will be managed by Grégoire Deniau, who won the Albert Londres prize in 2005. The Albert Londres prize is sometimes deemed the French equivalent of the Pulitzer prize. Deniau previously worked for Envoyé Spécial on France 2, one of France 24’s majority shareholders.
