Last news at 8

David Pujadas
We have covered the France 2 News at Eight presenter David Pujadas because he owns a family house in Najac. But to French viewers he has the gravitas of a Huw Edwards or even David Dimbleby on election nights. But last night (Thursday 8th June) was the last appearance of M Pujadas on the flagship news programme.
There is a renewal of personnel at France TV with the flagship breakfast presenter also retiring at the start of the summer holidays. William Leymergie has presented Telematin for 32 years, but at 70 is now leaving, though he will join a news channel called C8.
The changes will mark a new direction for France 2, though management is at pains to point out that the spirit of the programmes will remain.
