Following the recent opening of news bureaux in Brussels, London, Doha, Cairo, Paris, Moscow and Kyiv, euronews is to open a permanent desk in Washington.
Stefan Grobe, a journalist and expert on US affairs has been appointed as permanent correspondent of the US venture which in partnership with ABC News, will produce exclusive content for the news channel, keeping abreast of events on the continent in the lead-up to the presidential election in November.
The new desk is part of the channel's strategy to expand and boost its reach around the world. ABC News correspondents, experts and anchors will provide regular analysis of US politics and others news events exclusively for euronews in a series of interviews and two-ways.
In return, euronews will provide ABC News exclusive current and breaking news on European affairs and coverage of upcoming European elections.
euronews will also make available exclusive news footage from news events it is covering internationally.
