Decidedly, it moves in the morning. According to concordant sources, Samuel Étienne is preparing to leave that of the France Info channel, which he has been presenting since September 2017. The 52-year-old journalist and host submitted his resignation several weeks ago to the information management of France Televisions. After 6 years of waking up in the middle of the night, the presenter accustomed to marathon days want to get back to normal.
If he leaves the information continuously (but also France 2 which broadcasts the first half hour of its 6h/9h), Samuel Étienne continues on the other hand his collaboration with France Télévisions where he presents every day the game “Questions for a champion “. This former i>tv and Europe 1 also intends to continue his many shows that he offers on his page on the social network Twitch.
The replacement or replacement for Samuel Étienne has not yet been chosen by France Télévisions. At France Info, the morning should not be the only change. The public channel intends to relaunch at the start of the school year, with a significantly modified schedule. With 0.7% of PDA on average in May, it is still dead last among the news channels behind BFMTV (2.9%), LCI (2.2%) and Cnews (2.2%). The TF 1 group channel will launch a morning news, entrusted to Jean-Baptiste Boursier.
This audience crossroads is at the heart of this 2023 transfer window, since things are also moving on the side of France Info radio, which is looking for an incarnation after rejecting the candidacy of Patrick Cohen. At France Inter, Léa Salamé’s desire to get up later pushed the station to review all of its prime time from the start of the day.
