image004France 24’s Washington correspondents, Stanislas de Saint-Hippolyte and Philip Crowther, are officially members of the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA), according to a press release — making France 24 the only France-based TV channel to have two permanent correspondents accredited to the White House.

Stanislas has served as France 24’s French-language correspondent in Washington since 2011 and has covered US foreign policy, the military and Congress, as well as the White House. He was previously based in Paris where he reported the daily and weekly press reviews on France 24’s French-language channel. Before that, he was a journalist with the Paris-based news channel LCI.

Philip has also been with France 24 since 2011, serving as their English-language correspondent in Washington and working for its sister radio station Radio France Internationale (RFI). Philip has reported on political stories across the country, including the 2012 presidential election campaign, and will do so again for the 2016 campaigns. Prior to his arrival in DC, Crowther was based in Paris as an anchor and reporter for France 24 — covering events in Ghana, Angola, South Africa, Germany, the United Kingdom, as well as the revolution in Libya.

Félicitations to both Stanislas and Philip!
