Laurent Luyat, that’s the end!

The star presenter of France Télévisions will not succeed his friend Cyril Féraud in the presentation of Slam.

Stoppage for Laurent Luyat.

But Laurent Luyat was not the only one not to having seduced the audience. None of the candidates in the running has fully convinced. However, if Yasmine Oughlis, columnist in La maison des maternales, Jean-Luc Lemoine, host of Samedi d’en Rire, Thomas Isle, at the helm of Culture Médias on Europe 1, or even the Belgian host Sara De Paduwa have have already been rejected, Damien Thévenot, presenter of Télématin at the weekend and David Lantin, pillar of France Bleu, remain in the running, with France Télévisions not ruling out testing new candidates.

Priority to sports

“I am very happy because France Télévisions has also entrusted me with the presentation of entertainment programs for a year, he recently whispered at the microphone of Europe 1. I love that. Since I was little, I wanted to present variety shows. » But for now, his priority obviously goes to sport since Roland Garros, where he plays Monsieur Loyal on the terrace of the Philippe-Châtrier court, kicks off a very busy summer with the Tour de France and especially the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
