“60 years of radio, and 60 years of RTL”. A record held by Philippe Bouvard who joined the antenna of the former Radio-Luxembourg in 1965 before creating the emblematic Big heads in 1977 on the same station. A busy career and an equally deserved retirement that the host will take from January 1, as he announced on May 23 in his favorite microphone: “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”. A rest that will allow the nonagenarian to enjoy his beautiful and large family!

Married to Colette Sauvage since 1953, Philippe Bouvard is the father of two daughters, Dominique and Nathalie, born respectively in 1954 and 1964. More discreet than their famous father, the two women nevertheless followed in his footsteps, becoming journalists. In 2019, the host looked back on his family life in the columns of Paris Matchfull of emotions: “I probably missed a lot. I’m trying to be a better grandfather than I was a father. I am becoming a patriarch thanks to my great-grandchildren. It’s very nice. Two daughters, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, that makes a great table”.

Philippe Bouvard, at peace with Laurent Ruquier

Successor to the boss, Laurent Ruquier took over the reins of Big heads in 2014, which obviously did not please its founder! After launching numerous tackles through the media, the two men have visibly buried the hatchet. Last December, the former host ofWe are not in bed had in fact taken advantage of his predecessor’s birthday to show his admiration for him, live on air: “You will forever remain, and you know it very well, one of my masters in this profession. I thank you again for creating this show which amused me when I was young” declared Laurent Ruquier, visibly not resentful. Enough to allow the pillar to RTL to retire with a light mind!
