Journal de 13 heures or 13 heures is France 2's afternoon news program, seen weekdays at 1:00 pm (13:00) Central European Time in Metropolitan France. It has been broadcast since 1981.
This France 2 news program is seen opposite the similarly named news program on commercial broadcaster TF1, TF1 13 Heures, which has twice the viewership of France 2's program. As a result, France 2's 13 heures has seen a frequent turnover of news anchors for the program—15 in the last ten years.
It has been broadcast on the channels TF1, France 2, France 3, Canal + and M6 in France. In Belgium the series has aired on La Une and La Deux and in Côte d'Ivoire on La Première. Ivorian presenters of the series include Habiba Dembélé, Awa Ehoura, Alberic Niango, Pascal Aka Brou, David Mobio, Lanciné Fofana, Viviane Ahimain and Amidou Doukouré.
In the UK, an equivalent newscast is the BBC One O'Clock News, shown at 1:00 pm UK time and formerly anchored by George Alagiah. 13 heures is currently anchored by Elise Lucet.
It is also shown on SBS TV in Australia 6am weekdays.
