News 24 is the first Albanian 24-hour news television channel, founded in 2002 by Italian journalist and former shareholder of Gazeta Shqiptare newspaper, Radio Rash, and Balkanweb portal, Carlo Bollino.[1] The channel's format resembles its Italian equivalent Rai News24. News is updated every minute.

News 24 operates the popular news portal Balkanweb.[2][3] It was established in February 2000 by the Italian publishing company Edisud[4] (e.g. La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno) funded with a contribution from the Soros Foundation and then sold to Focus Group in 2011. [5][1] Balkanweb's videos come almost exclusively from 'News 24'.[1]
