Bernard Pivot died this Monday, May 6, 2024 at the age of 89, as his family announced to AFP. The famous journalist and writer had withdrawn from media life in recent years due to health problems.

This is news that must sadden lovers of the French language, as Bernard Pivot worked for its cause, particularly on television. The journalist died this May 6 at the age of 89, as his family announced to AFP and although we do not yet know the causes of his death, the man who was also a writer will have marked the history of the literature in the French audiovisual landscape. With the popular literary show Apostrophes on Antenne 2, at the beginning of the 1970s, then in Culture broth in the 1990s, the native of Lyon was able to interest viewers in new authors and certain moments of his shows became cult, like the passage by the American writer, Charles Bukowski.

Bernard Pivot has always been a rather reserved man about his private life and we ultimately know little about his partner with whom he did not live and whom he generally saw on weekends, as he had explained in the past. It must be said that the literary journalist was affected by the disease a few years ago. In 2022, he was secretly hospitalized and was very weak, as reported France Sunday at the time. However, despite a “health which deteriorates a little more every day”the magazine did not specify the exact cause of his hospitalization.
