Who we are

China Global Television Network, or CGTN, is an international media organization launched by CCTV on December 31, 2016. It is now part of China's predominant radio and television broadcaster, China Media Group, which has incorporated CCTV, CNR and CRI since March 2018.

As a multi-language and multi-platform media organization, CGTN operates in television and online. It also incorporates a video news agency CCTV+.

Headquartered in Beijing, CGTN has an international team of professionals based around the world with production centers located in Nairobi, Washington D.C. and London.

CGTN's six TV channels – English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian and Documentary – are available in more than 170 countries and regions worldwide.

CGTN, a pioneer of media convergence in China, also delivers content through digital platforms. CGTN Digital is accessible via CGTN.com, CGTN mobile applications, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Weibo and other social media platforms, with over 150 million followers across the globe.

The CGTN media convergence center endeavors to create a world-leading news content brand, integrating various media assets, technologies and management resources. From multimedia journalism to news cloud sharing, from tailored production to multiple delivery channels, it's designed to maximize the efficiency of content production.

Our mission

CGTN seeks to cover China and the world, reporting the news from a global perspective. It seeks to offer a distinctive alternative to the international information flow.
