The media of Senegal is varied and includes multiple television channels, numerous private radio stations, and over 15 newspapers.[1]


Print mediaEdit


The reading public for Senegal's diverse press is largely limited to Dakar and Thies.[1] The quasi-official Le Soleil is a daily newspaper. Other major popular independent newspapers include the dailies Sud Quotidien, WalFadjri, Le Quotidien, Le Matin, Le Populaire, Il Est Midi, and the economic weekly Nouvel Horizon. National newspapers are in French. English-language newspapers such as the International Herald Tribune are also available at many newsstands.[1]

Various trade organizations publish bulletins and newsletters such as those of the Dakar Chamber of Commerce and the periodical Entreprendre issued by the National Council of Business Leaders.[1]


Several Europe-based magazines enjoy a wide circulation, including Jeune Afrique, L'Autre Afrique, Paris Match, L'Express, Le Point, as well as the European editions of Time, Newsweek and The Economist.[1]
