Journal de 13 heures or 13 heures is France 2's afternoon news program, seen weekdays at 1:00 pm (13:00) Central European Time in Metropolitan France. It has been broadcast since 1981.

This France 2 news program is seen opposite the similarly named news program on commercial broadcaster TF1, TF1 13 Heures, which has twice the viewership of France 2's program. As a result, France 2's 13 heures has seen a frequent turnover of news anchors for the program—15 in the last ten years.

More generally, many French television channels offer a newscast at or around 1:00 pm: TF1, France 2, France 3, C8 and M6. In Belgium, La Une broadcasts a news bulletin at 1:00 pm, as well as La Première (RTI) in Côte d'Ivoire. Ivorian presenters of the series include Habiba Dembélé, Awa Ehoura, Alberic Niango, Pascal Aka Brou, David Mobio, Lanciné Fofana, Viviane Ahimain and Amidou Doukouré.

In the UK, an equivalent newscast is the BBC One O'Clock News, shown at 1:00 pm UK time and formerly anchored by George Alagiah.

It is also shown on SBS TV in Australia 6am weekdays.[citation needed]
