History and profile

Originally, the magazine was named "Radio 44" as it started publishing on 29 October 1944. The name would change ("Radio 45", "Radio 46", etc.) as the year of publication changed, until the year 1957, when it was renamed "Radio Télévision 57" and in 1959 was changed to "Télé 59". Its contents are basically coverage of television news and listings, cultural and lifestyle news and entertainment.

In 1960, Sofirad, the original owner, sold the magazine to Jean Prouvost, who named it "7 jours Télé 60" for a short period and then renamed it to the present "Télé 7 Jours" from 7 March 1960.
