A24

Grupo América Medios’s news channel (A24 is the abbreviation of América 24). It was preceded by CVN America Internacional and renamed at the time of its reestablishment, in 2005.

In terms of audience, it is one of the top three paid content TV news channels, after TN and C5N. Its programming includes renowned journalists specialized in politics.

In 2018 an institutional advert featuring a picture of all the channel’s hosts was heavily criticized: it promoted a pool of professionals comprised of eight men and no women. The only female host in A24, Soledad Larghi, was not included in the advert.
