Télé 7 Jours is a French weekly magazine published by Hachette Filipacchi Médias in France. It publishes news and materials relating to French radio and television programming.


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".

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" since 7 March 1960.

Circulation jumped to more than a million copies weekly in 1962 and 2 million by 1965 becoming the biggest circulation weekly in France.

In 1976, Hachette purchased the magazine.[1] The magazine remained the most read French magazine in the 1980s and 1990s reaching a circulation of 3.2 million weekly. However by 2005, printed circulation had dropped to 1.7 million with the arrival of other rival magazines. Its contents are basically coverage of television news and listings, cultural and lifestyle news and entertainment.

From 1985 to 2003, Télé 7 Jours organized a French television production award (similar in nature to the Emmy Awards) called the 7 d'Or.[1] From 1996 to 1999, Benjamin Cuq worked as reporter for Télé 7 Jours.
