La Première (RTI) is a pioneering terrestrial television channel in Côte d'Ivoire. It has formerly named Radio Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI), (the name of the company operating it) from 1963 to 1983 but in 1983 a new television channel made it necessary for the channel to be renamed to La Première.
On 4 August 1966, two studios in Cocody, 100m2 and 400m2 respectively were built with quality equipment. In 1973 the station began broadcasting in color.
Following the launch of a second television channel, CH2 on December 9, 1983, the old single television station RTI was renamed La Première.
