Ugh. I never liked Euronews-style newscasts without anchors. They always look like a bunch of reports thrown together without any "glue" to join them into a single program.
It's a bit sad indeed. However French local channels often run on low budgets, so this is quite commonplace across French local channels.
Some channel do nice efforts, though. For example, TV7 Bordeaux, still airing.
This is the neeeewwwws!!
