Within two years, Africanews, the first pan-African and multilingual media outlet stands out among the media landscape on the continent. The channel is already a leading source of news for millions of Africans in search of a relevant and independent information.

Whether on television screens, on the website or through its mobile applications, Africanews has for the past two years been offering to its audience a credible and an unbiased pan-African information in French and in English, produced and realized by Africans, and broadcasted from the headquarters in Pointe-Noire.

After a successful launch in 2016 with two awards (“Best Launch” at the Grand Prix des Médias 2016 and “Best New Channel Launch” at the 2016 Content Innovation Awards), Africanews has maintained this excellence. Reports on the continent have seen strong growth and Africanews content delivery has been enriched with two new weekly magazines launched in 2017and 2018:

International Edition, the press review of international news from a pan-African perspective

Inspire Middle East, a window on the MENA region which takes viewers into the leading edge of innovations, be they technological, cultural or lifestyle-related.

Africanews will soon be launching Inspire Africa, highlighting millions of men and women who established Africa’s development and are driving the continent’s growth, creativity and innovation. A programme broadcasts on Africanews and Euronews.
