With Playbook Paris, POLITICO Europe today launches its flagship newsletter in the French capital.

Every weekday, Playbook Paris will give a preview of what drives the day in the French capital - with original news, sharp insights into the power games behind the scenes and a touch of humor. The author of the French-language newsletter is Pauline de Saint Remy, who joined POLITICO Europe at the beginning of February from French radio station RTL.

In addition to her, four other journalists will strengthen POLITICO Europe's team in France, which was previously comprised of three journalists. As part of POLITICO Europe's investment in the French market, several new products are planned. Among them is Playbook Paris, which counted more than 10,000 subscribers before the first issue was published. The newsletter follows in the successful footsteps of the Brussels Playbook, launched in 2015, which now has more than 100,000 subscribers, and the London Playbook with nearly 60,000 readers.

In addition to a range of free newsletters including the Playbooks, POLITICO Europe's real-time information service for policy experts, POLITICO Pro, publishes a dozen newsletters, with focus topics ranging from tech to health, energy and finance. In 2020, the company was profitable for the second year in a row, increasing revenue by over 15 percent year-over-year despite the impact of Covid-19. POLTICO Pro grew revenue by nearly 30 percent in 2020.
