As an appetizer before 2024 and the Paris Games, he will be working alongside Stéphane Bern and Laury Thilleman to present the New Year’s Eve party on the Champs-Elysées on December 31.

Laurent Luyat has been one of the leading figures in France Télévisions’ sports department for many years, and began his career as a journalist at France Bleu Isère at the age of 20, happy to devote himself to his passion for sports. ultiplex on Saturday evening, the whole Sunday afternoon was devoted to sport, he recounts. In short, there were enough of us to cover all the news, and I was the youngest. At 20, I was 14. It wasn’t easy. So I had to make my mark in the business. That’s why I wanted to give it my all to show what I was worth!

But Laurent Luyat thought he was going to lose it all when he was called up for military service. In 1988, I had to do my military service. A heartbreaker to comment on matches, they shouted a bit!
