3 television channels

France 24 consists of three separate TV channels which broadcast in French, English and Arabic 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They share the same mission of providing a global public service and a common editorial stance. The website is also available in three languages. The journalists from the three channels work together, pooling their expertise.

A Paris-based newsroom with a large network of correspondents

France 24’s Paris newsroom is composed of over 400 journalists, representing 35 nationalities, and relies on a network of several hundred correspondents in nearly every country in the world. The channel’s journalists travel to the far flung corners of the world to report on major events.

France Médias Monde

France Médias Monde, the group in charge of French international broadcasting services, comprises the trilingual news channel FRANCE 24, the international radio station RFI and the Arabic-language radio station Monte Carlo Doualiya. From Paris, they broadcast to the world in 14 languages.

The group’s journalists and its unique network of correspondents offer viewers and listeners comprehensive coverage of world events, with a focus on cultural diversity and contrasting viewpoints via news bulletins, reports, magazines and debates.

Every week, France 24 boasts an average audience of 41.7 million viewers, RFI 34.5 million listeners and Monte Carlo Doualiya 6.7 million listeners (weekly audience – no extrapolation). Their new media platforms attract 24 million visits a month.

France Médias Monde is also a shareholder and partner of the French-language general interest TV channel TV5MONDE.
