Société Nouvelle d'Information Audiovisuelle SAL

Société Nouvelle d'Information Audiovisuelle SAL

The Société Nouvelle d'Information Audiovisuelle is an independent joint-stock company broadcasting as Voix du Liban (VDL). It is associated with the Phalange Party, which, in 2016, bought the rights to the 100.3 and 100.5 FM radio frequencies, previously owned by Noujoum Loubnan (Stars of Lebanon), a Category 2 (i.e. non-political) station. In 2017, the Lebanese Court of Cassation ruled that the Voix du Liban logo, with the acronym VDL, is a distinctive name worthy of protection and that its rights were to be granted solely to the Société Nouvelle d'Information Audiovisuelle SAL, banning the Société Moderne d'Information SAL from using this name. The General Manager of the company is Assaad Maroun. The members of the Board of Directors are Georges Jreij, Serge Dagher and Serge Bou Halka.
