The French radio station is free and available on both PC and Mac, as well as on smartphones and tablets via the free EnglishWaves app for Android, iPhone and Windows.

All the presenters and journalists are native English speakers from England, the US and Canada, among other countries, providing a wide range of accents.
News about France in English
EnglishWaves produces three news bulletins a day, which are broadcast every half an hour: morning, lunchtime and evening. The bulletins are centred on France, allowing all non-Francophones living in France to listen, in English, to news about the country in which they live.
In between the news bulletins, EnglishWaves broadcasts programmes based on 20 general interest themes: culture, economics, politics, comedy, music, travel, the environment, health, new technology, coaching, cooking and more. Most of these programmes, completely produced by EnglishWaves, draw their inspiration from the news and current events.
All the programmes broadcast during the week can be replayed for free on the station’s website.
