One of Ghana’s most respected young broadcast personalities Juliet Bawuah has joined Africanews, a yet-to-launch sister channel of Europe’s biggest television network Euronews.
Bawuah who until October was with local television network TV3, has joined the network which goes live in December.
Some 40 African professionals including Bawuah will help launch the project, which is being touted by Euronews as the “first ever pan-african rolling news media, unique in its concept and vision.”
A huge step for the young Ghanaian Journalist, she has since arrived in the Congolese town of Pointe Noire (after some weeks of training in Paris, and Lyon all in France, where she had the opportunity of meeting Euronews CEO Michael Peters) where one of four African offices of Africanews will be based. The channel’s other offices are in Abidjan, Johannesburg, Nairobi and N’Djamena.
A multi-million dollar television project, Africanews will cover the African and international news, business and sports stories 24/7 in English and French languages from an African perspective. Africanews adheres to same editorial charter as Euronews, guaranteeing its independence.
