France 24 launches new evening edition

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2010-10-05

Tonight at 7pm (GMT+2), French 24-hour news channel France 24 premieres its new evening edition which will offer "more business, more headlines and more original reports”.

Today, France 24 launches the new version of its evening edition, LIVE FROM PARIS, with more emphasis on business, sport, original reports and analysis of international news.

Jean Lesieur, Editorial Director of France 24, said: "with this new schedule, France 24 affirms itself, more than ever, as the indispensable channel for opinion leaders on all five continents".

From 7pm to midnight (GMT+2), on France 24’s French and English channels, this new news segment will be more reactive, proposing shorter, more dynamic and better defined segments.

Renée Kaplan, Deputy Editorial Director of France 24, said, “The viewer tuning in at any time during Live from Paris will find a livelier and more varied mix of all the essential news - with more business, more headlines and more original reports”.

On the menu of this new evening edition: at 7pm, the debate, hosted by Jean-Bernard Cadier in French and François Picard in English. From 8pm, full news bulletins will be presented alternatively, and every half-hour, by Antoine Cormery and Léa Salamé in French, and Mark Owen and Laura Baines in English.

Between each news bulletin will be a full update of the day’s sports news, as well as our very own reports and our new programmes: "Business matters", and "Zooming", highlights of the day’s programmes on France 24.
