TVMonaco set to start broadcasting in September 2023
During a press conference held on Tuesday, April 18th, at the recently re-opened Carlton hotel, new TV channel TVMonaco was officially presented to the industry.

Salim Zeghdar, general director at TVMonaco, along with deputy director Nathalie Biancolli, and station’s executives Marie-Pierre Gramaglia and Virginie Lavagna, launched the new Monegasque channel that, starting on September 1, 2023, will be covering the whole Côte d’Azur, extending from Genoa, Italy.

The new public service channel will broadcast a linear schedule and an on-demand one in both French and English. Programming will be mainly unscripted with a focus on four content genres: scientific themes, current affairs, sports, and lifestyle. The shows produced will initially be all unscripted, but the aim is to add scripted programs in about 12-18 months’ time. 

Revenue will come from advertising, and from selling the shows it produces. The budget for content for the first three months will be €15 million, after which there will be a budget set for 2024. 

Environmental issues will be largely emphasized, given the interest that Prince Albert II, the head of state of Monaco, has in this subject: in fact, he spoke about the environmental crisis when addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations on September 26th, 2022. Another crucial focus of the channel will be on wildlife in Monaco.

TVMonaco is currently operated by a team of 20 people, but it is planning to expand to 100 by end of 2024. Facilities will be located in the Fontvieille area of Monaco.
