24 heures (literally "24 Hours") is a Swiss regional Swiss-French-language daily newspaper, published by Edipresse in Lausanne, Vaud.

Foundation and operations[edit]

24 heures was founded in 1762 as the Feuille d'avis de Lausanne, adopting its current name in 1972.[2][3]

Change of name[edit]

Since 25 February 2005, the newspaper has had four local editions, with sections for the specific area of the canton:[4]

The Nord Vaudois-Broye and Riviera-Chablais editions replaced the newspapers La Presse Riviera-Chablais and La Presse Nord Vaudois.[5]

The newspaper shares some of its content with the Tribune de Genève, Edipresse's local newspaper for the Canton of Geneva.
