It's objectiveEdit

Following the First Persian Gulf War, during which CNN's position as the preeminent source of 24-hour news programming was cemented, the European Broadcasting Union decided to establish Euronews to present information from a European perspective. The channel's first broadcast was on 1 January 1993 from Lyon. An additional broadcast studio was set up in London in 1996. It was founded by a group of ten European public broadcasters.

As a rolling-news channel, headlines from both Europe as well as the world are broadcast in thirty-minute intervals. Brief magazine segments typically fill in the remaining schedule, focusing on market data, financial news, sports news, art and culture, science, weather, European politics, and press reviews of the major European newspapers. These item slots will occasionally be pre-empted by breaking news or live television coverage. Some closing segments are displayed without commentary under the banner "No Comment", which has been the channel's signature program since its launch.

Production and sourcesEdit

The channel employs an unusual presentation style: initially, rather than using in-vision presenters, it showed only video footage with recorded voice-overs. This aims to prevent bias. In 2011, however, extended news items featured in-vision reporters, including occasional pieces to camera.

The principal sources of footage come from APTN (Associated Press Television News) and Reuters TV, these being the partner agencies of the European Broadcasting Union. It also draws upon resources from Agence France-Presse, Italian ANSA, Portuguese LUSA, German DPA, Spanish EFE and Russian ITAR-TASS.
