Turning an important page in the history of Quebec television, during tonight’s news broadcast, Pierre Bruneau announced that he was retiring from half a century of journalism, including 46 years as a TVA antenna.
After celebrating its 70th birthday, it will air until June 16th. We will see him again in two election meetings in the fall, and that will be the end.
The time has come, he told his loyal audience. “I like a little shade to enjoy life with Janet and my family. ⁇
He wanted to leave a few years ago, but epidemic and war persuaded him to delay his release.
“I’m relieved,” he said NewspaperMinutes after delivering today’s message.
“I gave what I had to give. People are always behind me, proof that we are still No. 1 in the rankings. ⁇
His life, however, lasted for six decades. “I have been to all the major events marking Quebec after the party’s Quebecois election in 1976,” the respondent said, “harsh, harsh, harsh” in response to a mistake made in the Radio-Canada election. In 2007 the night went down in history.
Politicians pay homage to him
Apparently, the reactions combined.
“This is the end of an era,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote on Twitter, recalling Pierre Bruno “putting him in place once or twice”.
Quebec’s Premier, Franுவாois Legold, Montreal Mayor, Valerie Blande, Quebec’s Mayor, Bruno Mercant and many other politicians praised its excellence, which made Mr Bruno laugh.
“To do our job well, we must respect those who sit in front of us. Sometimes even if you are hard, they will always come back to you. ⁇

He message to the listeners
“ Now, I want to tell you about a great end in these next few minutes. I have been thinking about retiring for a long time, in fact I set a date a few years ago, but the epidemic of the last two years and now the war in Ukraine has delayed this process. However, I know the time has come. I told the TVA management that I was leaving at the end of this year. I will continue to host news at 5 pm and 6 pm until the summer. I will be face to face with the leaders and on the eve of the Quebec 2022 election. In the meantime, they will give TVA management the time and opportunity to select the person they would like to see instead of me. We have a good successor on our team.
I still have a passion for work. Coming to work has never been a job for me. On the contrary, it’s daily pleasure, but after 45 years in the light of TVA, after 50 years of journalistic career, I feel like a little shadow to enjoy Ginette and my life. I’m healthier and more, I’m happier in my life … “
