Her name has been circulating since the surprise decision of Alessandra Sublet to stop her career as a host to devote herself to comedy, but no one wanted to officially confirm the choice of Hélène Mannarino to replace her alongside Nicolas Canteloup in her pastille of daily humor.
This will be done this Thursday morning by the voice of Ara Aprikian, director of programs for the TF 1 group.
Hélène Mannarino, soon to be 32, joined LCI's editorial staff for cultural chronicles in 2016, and was entrusted with the "Carte Blanche" program a year later.
Since 2018, she has embodied the society magazine "Emergency Calls" on TFX.
In December 2020, she was at the helm of the show “Rétroscopie”, a mix of info and entertainment featuring a career review interview with actor Jean-Paul Rouve… In 2050. Last summer, she s t was also tried successfully for the presentation of pure entertainment, “Le Grand Quiz”, produced by Alexia Laroche-Joubert, a program which will return to the air on July 8th.
Still presenter of “Emergency Calls” on TFX
But since the start of the school year in September 2021, it is in the very serious role of host of the “Matinale LCI” that we found the journalist, Monday to Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., in duet with Stefan Etcheverry.
A role that is more difficult to reconcile with the offbeat tone of "C'est Canteloup", which would have prompted TF 1 to ask him to choose, which Thierry Thuillier, director of information for the audiovisual group, confirms to us: "Yes, there was an incompatibility.
It is difficult to shine in the evening on TF 1 in a program of parody of information and political news, and to meet in the morning on LCI to deal with this political news in the first degree ”.
Next September, Stefan Etcheverry will take the reins of “Matins LCI” alone, surrounded by a band of columnists.
Hélène Mannarino, she will keep the presentation of “Emergency Calls” on TFX.
