An ex-colleague and good friend joined France24 in 2007, just after it started up.
He is an excellent journalist, and does a lot of presenting, he is of course fluent in French.
Also, a really nice person. We correspond by email on a regular basis.

I find France24 a nice alternative to the UK 24 hour channels.

I don't bother with mainstream media any more. Much better places to get ' proper ' news Wink

During the heights of the Ukraine crisis last year SWMBO frequently watched France 24, NHK World HD and even RT HD for differing views/reports.

Charlie Hebdo coverage provides huge ratings boost for UK TV news channels.
24 hour News Channels, and main TV News Bulletins too.
