History of the channel

Originally called "NRJ TV", this television channel project had been on the NRJ Group's agenda for a very long time. The group did not despair of returning to television following the failure of its first trial in 1986 when it joined forces with Publicis, the advertising agency Gilbert Gross, and Gaumont to create the music channel TV6 on the sixth analogue terrestrial network, which appeared in February 1986 and disappeared on Saturday 28 February 1987 at midnight after Jacques Chirac's government cancelled the concession contract signed between the State and the channel for M6.

Finally, Jean-Paul Baudecroux (Chairman of the Supervisory Board of NRJ Group) and Marc Pallain (Chairman of NRJ 12) inaugurated NRJ 12 on 31 March 2005 at 7 pm with the arrival of DTT in French households.[2] The launch of this new channel, godchild of NRJ radio, which has existed since 1981, allowed Jean-Paul Beaudecroux to say that NRJ is taking "a revenge on time, a return to the future...". In its beginnings, in 2005, the channel broadcast many musical programs (La tête dans le clip, Hit NRJ 12, Hit Music Only, Dedicated Hit, Tout pour la musique, etc.), series (Couleur Pacifique, Code Lisa, Good Morning Miami, Sarah, Susan, etc.) and mangas (Mortal Kombat).

From 2007, the channel made manga and music programs disappear in favour of the production of its own magazines (Tellement vrai, Tellement People, Tellement Chic, etc.) and its own reality TV programs (Les Anges, L'Île des vérités, Allô Nabilla, Friends Trip, Star Academy, etc.).

In 2015, the channel aimed to become a more generalist channel. It cut many historical programs (magazines and reality shows) and thanked its star presenters such as Matthieu Delormeau, Clara Morgane and Cauet. New animators appeared, such as Benjamin Castaldi, Karima Charni, or Valérie Damidot.[3] At the end of 2015, a programme director was "thanked" following the failure to set up the new programmes: Talk Club, Unique au Monde, L'Académie des 9, Le Labo de Damidot, Face à France and Mission Plus-value. Jean-Paul Baudecroux decided to take control by deciding to return to the "fundamentals" (Les Anges, Friends Trip, Le Mad Mag, etc.).[4]
