A year ago, FRANCE 24’s Spanish channel began broadcasting live from the Colombian capital Bogota. A diverse mix of Spanish-language journalists from across the world now provides news coverage to 7 million homes in 13 countries.

It took more than six months to build the newsroom and studios in Bogota and required an intensive period of journalist training – with some help from colleagues at FRANCE 24’s French, English and Arabic services.

Then the big day  September 26, 2017  finally arrived. FRANCE 24 Spanish hit the airwaves, broadcasting in a language spoken by more than 350 million people across the world.

Today the channel provides news programmes and long-format reports offering more context and in-depth analysis to viewers.

There is also a Spanish-language version of the FRANCE 24 website.
