Elisabeth Lévy, Jean Messiha, Jean-Claude Dassier, Ivan Rioufol, Jérôme Béglé or even Sophie Obadia … no doubt, The hour of the pros has launched its new season with the return of Pascal Praud on CNews to ensure the debates between 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. then from 8:05 p.m. to 8:55 p.m.
After a first morning edition in which Professor Henri Joyeux and OM supporter René Malleville took part, briefly present by phone, the RTL journalist returned to the air in the evening to discuss the interview with Didier Raoult by Laurence Ferrari, the arrest of an Afghan refugee accused of colluding with the Taliban but also the funny speech of Sandrine Rousseau during the summer days of EELV.
Didier Raoult’s words divided the field and a series of skirmishes took place between Jean-Claude Dassier and Ivan Rioufol. Pascal Praud has called his speakers to order several times before letting the first-named know that he had not made “his best interventions” on the occasion of this issue.
