An internal transfer window: this is the choice of Paul Larrouturou. According to our information, the one who was still columnist for “Quotidien” on TMC this season will join the news channel of the same group: LCI. At the start of the school year, he will be in the team of Ruth Elkrief, who inherits the 8-10pm segment, the first part of which was occupied by Darius Rochebin (transferred at the weekend) this season. This new meeting will be very political in this presidential year.
The management of the continuous news channel relies on the daily presence of Paul Larrouturou on the air. Either on set, or in duplex, or in report mode. This shock recruit could also occasionally intervene on TF1. Its objective: “to tend towards the political interview”, reports an executive of LCI.
Less audience, but more hits?
Visibility side, the one with 126,000 followers on Twitter gives up a large pool of viewers. In June, channel 26, his future home, had a 1.1% audience share. Far from the 1.9 million viewers on average over the year (for 7.5% of PDA) of Yann Barthès’ talk show, where his work in the field was noticed on numerous occasions. In the meantime, Paul Larrouturou is finishing the writing of “Elysée confidential”, a book on Emmanuel Macron through a gallery of portraits of his friends and enemies, expected in September.
