The weekly show, presented by the channel’s new anchor Rebecca McLaughlin-Duane and broadcast every week on Euronews and Africanews, highlights the region’s commercial, creative and cultural landscape.
The Abu Dhabi bureau will also provide news content for Euronews and Africanews from across the Middle East and North Africa, ensuring that the network’s global viewership is kept abreast of events in the MENA region.

Our new operation will further support Euronews overarching editorial mission to represent All Views and All Voices to the peoples of Europe, Middle East and Africa,” said Michael Peters.
