Charline Vanhoenacker in Danger?

The show Le grand dimanche soir will not return in the fall, marking the end of an era for the media personality Charline Vanhoenacker. From now on, she will appear daily on the morning show of France Inter with a segment after the interview of Léa Salamé, around 9:35 AM. Although Charline wanted to continue the Sunday show, the management opted for a daily presence of the comedian due to the need for regular political satire.

Charline Vanhoenacker may be accompanied by other columnists and comedians. However, this reorganization comes after internal turmoil, notably the dismissal of Guillaume Meurice in June for "gross misconduct" following controversial remarks about a certain Benyamin Netanyahou, leading to resignations and a strike in solidarity.

Despite these upheavals, Charline will retain her show Bistroscopie, where she conducts weekly interviews with various personalities.

At the same time, Patrick Cohen will return to France Inter as a daily political editorialist. Yaël Goosz, who held this editorial position, is negotiating for a new slot. This replacement has sparked a motion of no confidence signed by more than seventy journalists, denouncing the management’s harsh handling.

Adèle van Reeth, the current director of France Inter, is criticized by some for her decisions deemed incomprehensible by the editorial staff. These tensions arise in an already strained context, with the end of Le grand dimanche soir and, according to some sources, concerns related to the rise of extremes. Nevertheless, France Inter continues to dominate radio audiences in France with an average of 6.85 million daily listeners.
