AFP continues to expand its range of products with Sur le fil, its first daily news podcast

AFP is launching Sur le fil, a short online podcast, intimate and rigorous, that takes news directly from the source thanks to the Agency’s unparalleled network of journalists deployed in 151 countries.


Starting March 30th, AFP will be broadcasting the Sur le fil podcast: a three-to-five minute podcast combining breaking news and original analysis from Monday to Friday. The podcast is conceived and presented by Antoine Boyer, regular AFP contributor since 2017 having already hosted the Twenty Twenty podcast on the U.S. presidential campaign. He is AFP's first 100% audio journalist.   

Sur le fil can be heard from today on the new Mon Daily playlist on Spotify and on this special page.  

The sound and music for Sur le fil was created by the Louie Media team.

This launch is part of AFP's wider strategy to support its clients across a broad spectrum of content. In the coming months, AFP will offer a range of audio archives and raw news sounds for all content producers.    

"We are excited to be able to push on faster from now on and to expand the range of AFP’s content and products,” said Phil Chetwynd, AFP's Global News Director.
