| Media set-up in PACA
The regional media and press panorama reflects the diversity that characterises
Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur.
Listing all the media would be a difficult mission, given the variety of supports,
the number of issues..
Regarding the audio-visual, apart from national TV channels and radios that have
regional and local information coverages, the région has its own Tv channels and
of course a multiplicity of local radios. TV programs' production is also very
dynamic, some organisms are gathering TV's from all the countries bordering the
Mediterranean Sea to share the programs' costs of production and broadcast them
on their domestic channels.
|A good example of this kind of shared production is Mediterraneo
: this program is co-produced by Jordanian, Palestinian, Algerian, Egyptian, Italian

Most of the communities have their own printed media, in this regard, there are
magazines adressed to the Dutchs, Germans, Swedishs, Englishs, Arabs, and even
Russians living on the french riviera.
Beyond this communitary press, the regional economy is widely covered in the additional
local pages of national magazines. Another approach of the regional economic press

Var, and part of Vaucluse.
Most of the departmental or regional institutions and professional associations,
publish their own information bulletin.
