Charles Pellegrin

I'm a freelance journalist based in mainland China.
I provide live on-camera reporting for France 24's French and English channels. In addition, I shoot, produce, edit and write video packages about China and the region. Since starting this new position, I've covered such news stories as the Coronavirus epidemic, the Hong Kong protests, the US-DPRK Summit in Hanoi, or Huawei's struggles in the face of US sanctions.

Before doing this I was working for France 24 as a full-time employee in Paris. I had many different roles, including producing news reports based on agency footage, presenting hourly news bulletins, as well as sports and business bulletins.
