The Decline of Public Broadcasting in France?

Catherine Ghosn



European public broadcasting has been suffering in the last few years from a decreasing budget, a reduction of quality programming and a loss of TV ratings. One may then wonder if, in France, we are not contributing in the same way to the decline of public broadcasting, especially since the audio-visual reform in 2009. The first part of my work carries out an analysis of concept definitions and public broadcasting in Europe which will lead us to then analyse the situation in France. The second part is devoted to the analysis of television in France, especially after audio-visual reform that could precipitate the decline of public service channels.

Keywords Public broadcasting, France, Europe, decline, audio-visual reform
