Gallic news net sets date

Web to air in French, English and Arabic

News channel France 24, described as a Gallic CNN, will bow in late November after securing permission to air from the Conseil Superieur de l’Audiovisuel.

The channel signed three separate mandates with the audiovisual watchdog to air in the French, English and Arabic languages.

Much brouhaha has surrounded the creation of the network, jointly run by pubcaster France Televisions and private commercial web TF1.

Political infighting, budgetary problems and public disagreements among the players have dogged the nascent web since its conception by President Jacques Chirac in 2002 as a web that would present the news from a Gallic point of view, countering the widespread American channels and U.K. pubcaster the BBC.
