Laurent Bignolas passed the hand this Friday, July 2, before Julia Vignali and Thomas Sotto took over the levers of Telematin in September.
“You can of course continue to send all your messages…” But it will no longer be Laurent Bignolas who will read them. This Friday, July 2, the host made his last appearance at the helm of the morning show of France 2, a departure already announced for several weeks. Not a surprise, then, but a moving moment, as with each departure, and to which all the editorial staff of Telematin wanted to participate by coming to the stage for the last seconds of the program.
“When Télématin stops, it’s to start again… more beautiful!”
A tribute appreciated by Laurent Bignolas, who also let go, and improvised a little rap and a particular dance, trying to target all his now ex-colleagues, “a way of associating you with the tribute which i pay to all those which were on this show, yo!“. Before resuming a bit of his seriousness.” Don’t forget! Télématin never stops, and when it stops, it’s to start again … more beautiful! “, promises the presenter, it must be said that the show has been going on since 1985! The opportunity for the technicians and journalists present on the set to launch an ovation, while a “Kisses!” fuse. Visibly moved (and also having to return the antenna for the rest of the programs …), Laurent Bignolas wants to stay sober: “Generic eh? We’re going to say ‘Generic!’ Thanks to the management! ”
Karine Baste-Régis also bids farewell
But he also throws a last joke, trying to calm the applause: “There are people who sleep!”. In any case, that was certainly not the case with journalist Karine Baste-Régis, who, a few minutes earlier, also made her last appearance on the show. “My brain doesn’t realize”, admitted the one that viewers can find all summer at the helm of 20 hours of France 2 in the role of joker of Anne-Sophie Lapix. With these departures, it is therefore a whole new page of the show which is about to open at the start of the school year, with Julia Vignali and Thomas Sotto at its head.
