Welt (meaning World) is a TV news channel in Germany and one of its oldest and best-known. Launched in January 2000 as N24 by ProSiebenSat.1 Media, it was sold in 2010 and acquired by the print publishing group Axel Springer in 2013, though it continued to provide news coverage for ProSiebenSat.1’s three main channels until 2016. Axel Springer renamed N24 to Welt in 2018, in line with its newspapers, Die Welt and Welt am Sonntag.
N24 was launched on 24 January 2000.
This logo was adopted on 15 September 2003, along with a new set of graphics.
New on-air graphics, based on the same logo, were launched on 8 May 2006. The logo now appeared animated in 3D with the square on the left appearing as an orange cube with a globe inside.
N24 introduced a new logo and graphics package on 12 September 2016, retaining the traditional orange-and-blue colours and introducing the FF Mark typeface. A sister channel, N24 Doku, was launched a few days later, on 17 September, with a similar logo and graphics package.
On 18 January 2018, N24 was renamed to Welt, as the final step in an effort by Axel Springer (and its news broadcast division, WeltN24 GmbH) to streamline all of its news operations under the Welt brand (which is used by the newspapers Die Welt and Welt am Sonntag). However, the on-air graphics from the 2016 rebranding remain unchanged.
Welt’s sister channel N24 Doku continues to use the N24 brand. Moreover, N24’s Austrian feed was replaced by an Austrian feed of N24 Doku on the same day.
