Euronews launches Romanian news channel
Euronews Romania, the national news channel of television network Euronews, started airing on Wednesday, May 25, delivering national, European and international news to Romanian audiences.
The Euronews Romania studios are located in Bucharest, working with a team of 200 journalists and technicians. Andra Miron Diaconescu was appointed editor-in-chief and will report to François Chignac, Euronews’ Branded Affiliates Editorial manager, based at the media’s headquarters in Lyon, France. She has 17 years of experience in journalism and media management, working for local media brands such as B1 TV, National TV and Realitatea TV.
The Romanian network will broadcast 24/7, with live news programs from 6 am to midnight every day, the company said. Aside from news bulletins, Euronews Romania will air both Euronews magazines and local productions from various areas, from history to gastronomy, health, science, high tech or wellness.
Euronews Romania will be available in the must-carry package of all major cable providers in Romania, namely Vodafone, Orange, and RCS-RDS. Euronews will also continue to broadcast on a separate channel in English across Romania.
Since 2018, Euronews has launched five branded affiliate projects. Euronews Romania is the fifth branded affiliate channel to start airing, after Euronews Albania in 2019, Euronews Georgia in 2020, Euronews Serbia in 2021, and Euronews Bulgaria on May 5 this year. The Euronews Romania project was born out of a partnership between the European network and the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, signed in January 2021.
