In a recent press release, the Turkish Radio and Television Company (TRT) announced the launch of its new digital news channel TRT Afrika.
Available in four languages (English, French, Swahili and Hausa), this channel aims to represent “Africa as it is” through rigorous journalistic work. TRT Afrika’s mission is also to highlight the strategic partnership between Turkey and Africa as well as bring untold and normally low-profile stories to the public. The entire staff of TRT Afrika is made up of media professionals from 15 countries on the continent.
The launch of the channel took place on March 31, 2023 within the framework of the first summit organized in Istanbul between the TRT and the African Broadcasting Union (AUB). Under the theme “Towards a Digital Future: Reshaping Public Service Broadcasting”, the event aimed to strengthen cooperation between Turkish and African media.
