With the last "Anne Will" edition ever, an era of political talk came to an end on Sunday evening (3 December). The farewell was correspondingly emotional.

Berlin – For 16 years, Anne Will (57) has been one of the country's most renowned talk show hosts thanks to her ARD show of the same name. In the course of her journalistic work, she rarely treated her guests with kid gloves: over the years, she confronted high-ranking guests such as former German Chancellor Angela Merkel (69) or Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz (65) as relentlessly as she did critically, probed and probed and put many a self-confident politician in distress.

Last edition of "Anne Will": Robert Habeck also congratulates

That is now over: On Sunday evening (3 December), Das Erste showed the last "Anne Will" issue ever. Under the motto "The world in disorder – Is Germany up to the challenges?", things heated up once again, before quite conciliatory words were found at the end. For example, studio guest and Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck (54) thanked the departing presenter for "16 years of enlightenment".

Anne Will, however, first addressed her loyal audience: "I would also like to thank you for the great trust and interest you have shown us," said the 57-year-old, who then emphasized the "really great cooperation" with ARD and NDR. A big thank you is also due to her team. Finally, she wished her successor, former "Tagesthemen" spokeswoman Caren Miosga (54), good luck for the task ahead: "From Caren I steal a sentence she said about her successor, Jessy Wellmer: Be nice to her, she is too!"

"Anne Will" becomes "Caren Miosga"

"Anne Will" will be discontinued, but only indirectly: The political talk will run from January 2024 with a new presenter and has been renamed accordingly. Instead of Anne Will, Caren Miosga will host the show next year – she is no longer named after Will, but the new hostess. However, the basic concept is not expected to change much. Sunday evenings will also be retained as a regular slot on Das Erste.

Emotional words: "Tagesthemen" compilation pays tribute to Anne Will's work

When Anne Will finally moved on to the "Tagesthemen" with Jessy Wellmer (43), the homage to the political talk show host was far from over: "Today marks the end of a talk era that you, dear Anne, have shaped for over 16 years," Wellmer paid tribute to her colleague with emotional words. This was followed by a compilation that reviewed the most memorable "Anne Will" moments – from her first broadcast to heated discussions, for example with the then chancellor candidates Olaf Scholz, Armin Laschet (62) and Annalena Baerbock (42).

In the Berlin studio of the ARD talk, there were lush bouquets of flowers and warm hugs for the Cologne-born journalist. As she herself confirmed, this will continue to be retained by the public broadcasters in the future. However, Das Erste can not only do politics, but also entertainment: The day before, Florian Silbereisen (42) competed with his "Advent Festival" against TV legend Thomas Gottschalk (73) and "Disney100" - a ratings duel with a clear winner ...
