A page turns for Laurent Ruquier… Since 2006, the host occupied the slice of the second part of the evening on France 2.

In a statement shared on social media, he said: “Since the information has been published, I confirm that tomorrow night will be my last Saturday night show after 17 seasons together from We’re not in bed to We’re live.“Ensuring not to be cold with his former protegee, Laurent Ruquier shared:”It’s my decision to leave this time slot, not being comfortable co-hosting for a talk show. I tried, but despite my natural understanding with Léa Salamé, I find the exercise too frustrating.“
Wishing the journalist the best, Laurent Ruquier wrote: “I wish good luck to Léa Salamé as well as to her producer and I am working with France 2 on new projects for the start of the school year. I also hope to see you again with joy, next season every Sunday evening for Les enfants de la télé.After thanking viewers for being so loyal to him all these years, the host added, “Thank you again to the viewers for being so faithful to me for all these years. Thank you to the known or less known artists, writers, singers, comedians and comedians for trusting me to offer more visibility to their cultural activities. I will miss them.In the comments section, Valérie Trierweiler wrote:We will miss you on Saturday night!Arielle Dombasle shared:Laurent, you are the prince of the show! You remain the best. Always at the forefront of innovation, audacity, laughter, truth and a tender heart!!!“
