Loved by some, hated by others, Jean-Marc Morandini is a divisive personality in France. A journalist, producer and radio and television host, he is one of the leading faces of the French audiovisual landscape.
If he originally had the ambition to become a great reporter, he will not leave France in the end and his career will revolve more around media news. Born in Marseille on August 5, 1965, Jean-Marc Morandini cut his teeth in a school of journalism and communication in which he multiplied professional experiences in several local media.
At the end of the 1980s, his diploma in his pocket and a few years of experience as a radio reporter, he became the youngest news presenter on the 1 p.m. news of FR3 Midi-Pyrénées. He then joined La Cinq, a brand new channel at the time, as a journalist and special correspondent.
But it was in 1992, when he joined TF1, that Jean-Marc Morandini rose to fame. He presented the program Tout est possible, which was a great success and propelled him to the forefront. This talk show presented news, personalities or unusual subjects which were then commented on on the set.
However, the program aroused several controversies and the presenter thus became the target of many critics. As Premiere reports, Les Guignols notably use the face of Jean-Marc Morandini to embody the excesses of television.
But in 1996, while the program was still enjoying some success, TF1 finally decided to deprogram it and end the collaboration with the journalist to put an end to the controversy.
