Nelson Monfort, the end announced!

Nelson Monfort, the end announced!

The time is approaching for Nelson Monfort, at 71 years old. The essential France Télévision interviewer will officiate at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and then comment on figure skating one last time with Philippe Candeloro before bowing out.

THE Paris 2024 Olympic Games would have lacked a little something without the interviews with Nelson Monfort on France 2 and France 3… The 71-year-old sports journalist has reached retirement age but obtained an exemption to continue in 2024 in order to work during the Paris Olympics (July 26-August 11). On January 1, 2025, he will no longer be an employee of the public service audiovisual group. Perhaps he will be able to appear as a special guest from time to time.

Philippe Candeloro, interviewed by Cyril Hanouna on Sunday, rightly regretted the departure of the great figure from the France TV sports department, who is also his partner in skating competitions. “ With Nelson Monfort, we will go until the end of December 2024 to comment on skating. And he, unfortunately, at the age of 71, he will no longer be able to be an employee of France Télévisions. So at the end of December, unfortunately, the skating duo stops”thus launches the 1994 world skating vice-champion.

The Monfort-Candeloro duo not reconduit?

Candeloro, not requested by the Paris 2024 Olympics by the management of France TV, also confides to TPMP that he does not know who will be the commentator who will accompany him next year: “No one suggested I continue with someone with whom I could get along well and have as much fun as I did with Nelson for over 16 years. For the moment, I don’t know if I will continue to comment on skating after December 2024 ».

What if France Télévisions even turned the page on the Monfort-Candeloro duo? The troublemaker from the ice rinks is not sure of anything. In any case, we will know in a few months the TV presenters for the 2025 European Figure Skating Championships, from January 20 to 26 in Croatia. The 2025 world championships will follow, from March 24 to 30, at the TD Garden in Boston in the United States, which will also be followed on France TV channels.
