Rwanda: new TV10 optimizes quality of TV news


From the 17-29 June 2013, CFI organized a training course in Kigali aimed at journalists from the TV10 channel to improve the editorial organisation and optimise the quality of TV news broadcasts.

Hosted by Gilles Trenel (editor on chief of France Télévisions) and Mathieu Despiau (JRI) the goal was to structure the editorial team in order to produce local news programming which is both lively and interactive.

Over a period of two weeks, the two experts advised the journalists from the editorial team in the preparation, presentation and production of news programmes in French.

The course also tackled the organization and management of editorial teams.

Télé10 is the first privately owned commercial station in Rwanda.It was launched in February 2013 and the TV10 group, which also includes a private radio station, aims to produce non-specialised local programming in three languages with an editorial line bringing together political and cultural news, social subjects and entertainment.

As CEO Eugène Nyagahene states: “Our goal is to create a modern TV channel giving voice to the civil community and reflecting a positive and enterprising image of Rwanda”.
