Who will succeed the emblematic presenter of TF1 to take over the controls of the so important 1pm newscast?
Everyone agrees that after the decision taken by Jean-Pierre Pernaut to leave the 13 hours TF1 after 32 years of good and loyal service, the pressure is maximum on the shoulders of Gilles Pélisson, boss of the channel, and especially that of Thierry Thuillier, in charge of information. No question of being wrong in the choice of the successor of the king of the midday news, the most watched in France and Europe. The event brings together nearly 6 million viewers daily. It weighs 40 percent of audience share and especially 5 percent of advertising revenue.
