Tribute to Roland Faure


It is with great sadness that URTI's General Direction learnt of the death of Mr Roland Faure, former President of URTI...

...from 1987 to 1997 and Honorary President of our Executive Board since then.

Journalist. Director of news at Radio France from 1979 to 1981. Chairman and CEO of Radio France from 1986 to 1989, in which capacity he created France Info in 1987 alongside Jérôme Bellay. Member of the Conseil Supérieur de l'Audiovisuel (CSA) from January 1989 - creation of the institution - to January 1997. He also accompanied the creation of the Centre Méditerranéen de la Communication Audiovisuelle (CMCA) in Marseille.

We would like to pay tribute to his professionalism, his energy and his kindness towards URTI.

With our most respectful memory.
