Competent professionals in all audiovisual fields

Canal 3 is a network of dozens of professionals who bring the channel to life on a daily basis. Many journalists cover the field to provide you with quality information and local information. They practice their mission ethically and contribute to the quality of information and journalism in Burkina Faso. Canal 3 also has a large number of technicians who edit reports and, more generally, produce your audiovisual content. Finally, it is important to mention the administrative department of Canal 3, which ensures the proper broadcasting of your programs.

Canal 3, a more local television…

Canal 3 focuses on the promotion of African cultural values in its editorial approach, with a programming schedule made up of 60% local productions. These values are present through debates proposed by the channel, variety shows, games, documentaries and, of course, the 7pm news and the MidiMag. Finally, many Burkinabe and African fictions are featured on Canal 3.

Canal 3 also places the notion of proximity to its viewers at the heart of its strategy. Illustrating and documenting the concerns of Burkinabe people is a daily objective for the channel’s employees. Themes related to development, education, the environment or the economy thus occupy an important place in the channel’s programming schedule.

…which remains open to the world

While African values are at the heart of the programs, Canal 3 is still a channel with a worldwide reach. Many partnerships with foreign media such as Deutsch Welle, CFI, Go Africa, Vox Africa, Euronews and France24 enable Canal 3 television to provide an international perspective both in news coverage and in the exploration of foreign cultures.
