You have to start somewhere. And it's not Anne-Sophie Lapix who will say otherwise. Invited this Friday, December 8 on "Quotidien", the journalist faced her very first television appearance.

"It would be silly to do without it," says Yann Barthès ironically before launching the tape recorder. It was on the local channel 8 Mont-Blanc that Anne-Sophie Lapix appeared for the first time in front of the camera. Initially embarrassed, the journalist quickly became amused by this archive: "My voice is not yet settled. And every time I see that, I see the sunfish side and the dirty hair especially!"
An astonishing comment that was explained a few seconds later on the set of "Quotidien": "I shouldn't have presented this newspaper because in fact the person who was supposed to do it didn't come. I was still in journalism school. For a month, the whole TV team was reporting for 8 Mont-Blanc and one day the presenter didn't come. So I replaced it."
At the head of the 20 hours of France 2
"It was a first without rehearsal, so... that's it," adds Anne-Sophie Lapix, who then specifies that "these images are brought out to her every time." "I'm happy to look at them again," she concludes with a smile.
Since September 2017, Anne-Sophie Lapix presents the 20 p.m. news on France 2. On average, 4.8 million viewers watch its news. "Watching the news is still a habit and it will remain so. We need to sit down and come together. Everyone has been predicting the end of 20 p.m. for years and Covid has shown that there is still an appointment, the need to be together, not just to react to pushes that we receive all day long, but to try to understand. We decipher the news," she says.
