A page in radio history will be turned next January. Philippe Bouvard, who at 94 still writes a weekly column on RTL, announced this Sunday that he would cut the microphone on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday on the air, “a world record”, according to the station.

“There is a temptation, which is not a temptation of laziness, but a temptation of record, it is to go until January 1st, it will not be bad enough, and then to listen to the others and to be silent,” explained the tireless journalist this Sunday on RTL, in reference to the retirement that he refused for a long time.

At the origin of “Big heads”

“On January 1, I will have established the double record that I hoped for, that is to say 60 years of radio and 60 years of RTL,” explained the man who started in 1965 at Radio Luxembourg, which became RTL in 1966 , before launching “Les Grosses têtes” in 1977 and making it the most listened to program in France.

“I would really like to have this one (this record), because, I won’t hide it from you, I really liked the radio, and the radio gave it back to me,” added the journalist who returns to moments that forged his career in “Les portraits de Philippe Bouvard”, Sundays at 6:40 a.m. on RTL.

Bouvard remains a member of the “RTL family”
