RTL will not be looking for a new talk show host following the announcement that Eva Jenek will move to public broadcaster. In a conversation with NU.nl, Peter van der Vorst said he was satisfied with the current late-night occupancy rate.
Jinek has not been seen on RTL 4 for several months due to maternity leave. Due to her move to AVROTROS, the presenter will not return.
Humberto Tan can currently be seen on weekdays in the late evening. Renzi Klamer will officiate Sunday. Tan, Clammer and Bo van Erveen Dorens take turns hosting the talk show.
“We are very happy with Umberto, Bo and Renzi,” says van der Vorst. “They’re three very strong men with three personalities of their own. The three of them could easily create a year-round talk show.”
“We can make do with the Three Musketeers for now,” laughs Klamer. If a fourth colleague joins him, he will prefer a woman. “I don’t think you should hire a woman just because she’s a woman, but in the mix we have now, women would be more welcome. But of course I’m not talking about that at all.”
“I want my children to know who my father is and not from the TV.”
Klamer likes the current way of working. He sometimes offers a Monday to Friday shift and also takes care of Sundays.
“Of course there are professions that are much more difficult than what we do as a talk show host, but it puts a huge strain on your daily life in terms of times. I never want it to be the same as it was before. You’re on TV every evening for nine months of the year. I don’t think anyone does that anymore.”
Klamer notes that the change is certainly welcome, because he has a family with young children. “I want my children to still know who the father is in five years and not just through TV.”
