i24NEWS has announced plans to open two new bureaus in Rabat and Casablanca as the Israel-based news channel launches in the country.
The announcement was made last night at a gala event held at the Chellah Hall in Rabat.
“Even before the signing of the normalization agreement between Israel and Morocco, and actually throughout i24NEWS’ activities in the past several years, we have seen that the channel has a loyal audience in Morocco. We have seen that this is a very engaged and active audience on social media networks, and we are excited to open branches in Morocco, which will help deepen our coverage in the country,” said CEO Frank Melloul.
In addition to the Tel Aviv headquarters, i24NEWS also broadcasts from studios in France, the United States and recently from the United Arab Emirates. The channel is part of Patrick Drahi’s Altice Group.
