Strong, historic, influential and iconic brands that are integral to the daily lives of the French public, providing news, exclusive content and entertainment.
Today Lagardère News attracts more than 6.9 million listeners to its broadcasts each day1, and commands a weekly audience of more than 4.5 million readers for its press titles2 and nearly 14 million unique visitors to its online platforms3.
ELLE International is the world's largest media network, with 33 million readers, 78 international editions and a non-media licensing business that spans 80 countries.
The News division plans to capitalize on that solid foundation in its pursuit of further growth, by drawing on:
