The news had the effect of a bomb! Jean-Pierre Pernaut will no longer be at the helm of TF1’s 1pm newscast in 2021. He should indeed pass the baton on September 18, 2020. A news that he first made official on Twitter on September 15, 2020. Since then, many personalities have reacted to this announcement, starting with his wife Nathalie Marquay. Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, who presented the first channel’s 8pm newscast for twenty-one years, also spoke.
The same evening, the iconic 72-year-old personality was invited to France 5, in C à vous, to come back to this shock announcement. Close to Jean-Pierre Pernaut, PPDA unsurprisingly sent him a message as soon as he learned that he was leaving the news. “In a short text, I told him: ‘Welcome to real life.’ Television cannot sum up a life. It’s nice, it’s great, we do it with passion, but it’s not just that. There are other things, “he said.
The journalist then sent a spade to TF1, a channel for which he worked from 1987 to 2008. The reason? Unlike Jean-Pierre Pernaut, he could not choose the date of his departure. Patrick Poivre d’Arvor was indeed dismissed overnight. “I think he dealt with smarter, more understanding management, they must have argued before. I’m not in the secret, but they must have told him that he was going to announce his departure himself, which is still more glorious, that they weren’t going to do that on a corner of the table like that. ‘happened to me, “he said.
He was stupidly laughed at
Like the viewers of TF1, PPDA will retain Jean-Pierre Pernaut’s particular style. “It wasn’t the 1pm diary, it was Jean-Pierre Pernaut’s diary. He had a way of doing things that was not ours, but we got along very well. He took care of this. famous deep France that was despised for a very long time in Paris. He was mocked foolishly, because it was good that there could be a light of this nature “, he declared. Words that should touch his colleague.
Remember, however, that Jean-Pierre Pernaut will not disappear from the small screen. He will always present SOS villages, Les Plus Beaux Marchés de France. He is also preparing a magazine on the riches of our land and a new digital program.
