News TV Channel / Euronews is a multilingual news media service, headquartered in Lyon, France. Created in 1993, it aims to cover world news from a pan-European perspective. Euronews is majority owned by Naguib Sawiris, an Egyptian businessman, who is Chairman of its Supervisory board. Sawiris owns 53% of the channel (through Media Globe Networks). In 1992, following the First Persian Gulf War, during which CNN’s position as the preeminent source of 24-hour news programming was cemented, the European Broadcasting Union decided to establish Euronews to present information from a European perspective. The channel’s first broadcast was on 1 January 1993 from Lyon. An additional broadcast studio was set up in London in 1996. It was founded by a group of ten European public broadcasters.
