Many years ago,I accustomed to listen from radio to the " voice of america".There was a program named : " news in special english".The announcers were " Stam Basbi" and " Mimi lavage".I got great benefit from it.Today,when I searched for " News in Slow French",I found podcasts purchased by visacards! No doubt that economic status varies from country to country and I hope to find " news in slow french" in the near future for free.

If I were a college French professor, I would create a free web page and record (video?) my fourth year students reading the daily news slow enough for language learners to understand. I'd also post a PDF of the text so learners could read along.

You missed my point. The fourth years would read the news for you and me to listen to. It would be a fantastic exercise of the fourth year student and we could listen to free high quality French audio.

I would just listen to normal French and try to understand what they're saying, in the beginning it may sound like gibberish depending on your current level but eventually you will get used to the rhythm and understand some words, slowly you'll graduate to knowing what they're talking about and finally you'll understand everything. If you're very much a beginner listener, make it a game to catch words and find the punctuation marks in speech (e.g. stops, end of words, end of sentences). My French is not good enough to understand much of what is going on on this website but as it's Radio France International perhaps it's useful, they seem to speak quite slowly or at least very clearly and you can find a wide range of topics as well as exercises. Above all, it's free.

This is true. I have considered subscribing a number of times and could not justify the monthly charge.
