Euronews launches first live studio news programme



Euronews has launched its first major new format following the arrival of NBC News as a major stakeholder in the channel.

Good Morning Europe with Tesa Arcilla launched today on the English language version of the channel as part of a raft of changes a516digital first reported about earlier this year. The new programme is the channel's first ever studio-based news bulletin in the channel's history. The programme is live at 7:00am BST, 8:00am CEST.

A report in France's Les Echos in December 2017 promised that other language services will also get their own live morning programme in due course. As Euronews becomes 'Euronews NBC', the channel will also add talk shows and other presenter-led programmes during the rest of the day.



The new programme is the channel's first ever studio-based regular news programme in the channel's history. Since launching on 1st January 1993, Euronews has traditionally relied on off-screen newsreaders and reporters, broadcasting a continuous loop of news and features throughout the day.

Embedded within Good Morning Europe is new social media segment The Cube,  which verifies news stories found across social media platforms.

Last year, Euronews split into separate services for each language group, enabling the service to show different news programmes, reports and adverts to different audiences.


Since 2015, Euronews has been broadcasting from this rather unusual building in Lyon, France.

In the UK, Euronews is available on Sky 508, Virgin Media 620 and via the TVPlayer website or app.
