After 16 years of good and loyal service, Laurent Ruquier left the second part of the Saturday evening of France 2 at the start of the 2022 school year. The public channel has chosen Léa Salame to succeed him with What era.
A year later, the host, who made a huge blunder against Philippe Lacheau, continues to occupy this slot with her talk where she is surrounded by Christophe Dechavanne, Philippe Caverivière and Paul de Saint-Sernin. Regarding Laurent Ruquier, she told RTL that she was no longer in contact with him…
“I think we’ll talk again.”
“We were never friends, but we had a real respect. We had a real history together, I was his columnist, then I was his co-presenter. He wasn’t happy, he is gone. I’m not going to revisit the episode, but I wish him the best at BFM”she explained in We’re doing TV again before estimating: “I think we’ll talk again. I think time calms things down, I think time has already calmed things down”.
“And besides, when we tried a year ago to make me say bad things or to make me say anything about Laurent Ruquier, I said: ‘You will never say a bad word or harm coming from me about the person of Laurent Ruquier because he is someone that I carry in my heart”specified the host who sharply cropped Daphné Bürki in What era.
Laurent Ruquier’s new challenge
This summer, Laurent Ruquier decided to leave France 2 after more than 20 years in the public service. Between now and October, he will take on a new challenge by joining BFMTV. On the latter, he will take control of a daily news segment broadcast between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. For this, he will be accompanied by Julie Hammett.
A transfer learned by Léa Salamé in the press. “It gave me a bit of a shock when I read that he was leaving the public service because he really is an image of public service”, she commented. This Saturday, September 16, 2023, the one who accused Christophe Dechavanne of having forcibly kissed a woman will be at the head of a new issue of What era on France 2. From 11:20 p.m., she will receive Muriel Robin, Pierre Arditi, Alain Juppé, Victoria Dauberville, Mathieu Forget, Thomas Piketty and Julia Cagé.
