The famous journalist Denis Brogniart became a sports columnist on Europe 1 in 1991 then on Eurosport in 1993. From 2002, he became a TV host for the Koh-Lanta entertainment program on TF1. The latter was already present on the first season of the show in 2001 which was presented at the time by Hubert Auriol but only as a voiceover. In addition to being a facilitator, he has the role of referee of the game and tirelessly ensures respect for sportsmanship. At the same time, he also presented the game Fear Factor between March 2003 and April 2004. Passionate about sport, he can be found at the presentation of events such as the Rugby World Cup, the 2010 Football World Cup or again as a commentator for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
On the heart side, Denis Brogniart married a certain Hortense in 2007. The couple gave birth to four children.
In a survey published by Here, collaborators of the host Denis Brogniart spoke of their relationship with the latter, saying that he was not far from “moral harassment”. The Koh-Lanta star would have humiliated some of these collaborators in public. “Everyone knows that Denis Brogniart is capable of humiliating anger, especially towards women,” said a union official from TF1 to our colleagues.
Contacted by Here, the host is finally out of the silence. “I am very committed, a perfectionist and during two live broadcasts on TF1, where the pressure is very intense, I had words that went beyond my thoughts, comments that offended some people and I regret it”, he began by explaining and adding: “Nothing justifies my behavior, which followed certain difficulties. These isolated facts do not reflect the privileged relations based on respect and benevolence that I maintain with the technical and editorial teams (…) I would like to apologize to those I may have hurt.”
