France 24 is the new international news channel based in Paris. They're one of the first cross-media networks, operating on the web and on TV from day one in December 2006. In April 2007 they hosted a press breakfast at MIP-TV to explain their plans to expand Arabic and start Spanish language programmes. This is going to put a lot of pressure on the radio service, Radio France Internationale.
