In celebration of its 40th anniversary in France, Apple has opened ‘Apple Music radio studio’ in Paris, the first of its kind in Europe. The new initiative will strengthen Apple’s presence built on four decades of innovation, creativity, and customer service across France.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said:
“France holds a special place in my heart. Every time I go there, I am inspired by this welcoming, dynamic and deeply creative community of artists and developers. I am delighted to celebrate 40 years of Apple in France with our local teams and the customers and communities they serve ”.
Apple Music radio studio in Paris is launched to support the French cultural scene
Like Apple Music studios in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and London, the new Apple Music radio studio in Paris located on Champs-Élysées Avenue will provide cutting-edge equipment to creators to produce original local content, promote established and emerging French artists, and host radio shows.
With Apple Music hosts Mehdi Maïzi and T-Miss at the helm, the Paris studio will welcome the biggest names in French-speaking music, while providing a springboard for emerging talents. Audio shows and long format interviews of LE CODE and Hits Français programs will be recorded there. The studio will also soon host artists who will come to host their own radio shows. The space will include a radio studio with a DJ booth, as well as a spatial audio listening booth for artists.
As per the announcement, Apple’s local contribution will also result in the production of Apple TV+ original content. The video streaming service announced its first original French-language production, “Liaison” in June this year.
