Edoardo Grassi the French Head of Delegation at the Eurovision Song Contest has said that Junior Eurovision is not a show for France 2.
The Head of Delegation was out in Bulgaria this weekend for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and told Tele Loisirs that the event was taken very seriously by Bulgaria. He said that the contest is an interest to France Televisions but that due to the broadcast time it isn’t a show that would work on France 2.
It seems that it would be more likely if France returns that the contest would be broadcast on France 4 which is aimed at teenagers and young adults. France Televisions does not have a dedicated childrens television channel.
