Founded in 1992, the 17 Juin Media group has become an essential partner for French TV channels over the past few years, particularly for its proven skills in health, medical and science programmes. Thanks to Magazine de la Santé [“Health Magazine”], shown on France 5 and presented by Michel Cymes and Marina Carrère d’Encausse, the company has renewed the health programme genre and created a style that has been a success with viewers.
The 17 Juin Media group is a new independent organisation within the Newen galaxy (Telfrance, Capa, Be Aware), and represents the offer in health and science magazine programmes and documentaries that Newen lacked. Thanks to this association, 17 Juin Media will be in a position to develop new programmes while taking advantage of Newen’s skills in the fields of fiction and distribution.
