The TV

Television is a media that opens a window on the world. Every day it puts the news in pictures for the audience . Stories can be covered during the newscast and then can be explored thanks to longer formats.

The radio

The radio is a media of the instantaneous. The audience can listen to it everywhere : at home, in the streets, at work, in their car, abroad… you’re in touch with the whole world thanks to a simple transistor.

The web

From being an emerging form of media to becoming a colossus in the world of live news, the internet has changed a great deal over the last 15 years. Information published online is available worldwide in the form of text, images and sound. The internet is the most interactive form of media as it allows the public to react easily to news by posting comments.

The paper

The printed press is the oldest media, and it’s also a reference. Every day, the newspaper sums up the major news and organizes it. It helps analyze, broaden and put the news into perspective for its readers.
