The Altice Media group has taken the decision to dismiss Jean-Jacques Bourdin from the antenna of BFM and RMC. As a result, the journalist should receive a staggering sum for this dismissal.
Last January, Jean-Jacques Bourdin was the subject of a complaint for attempted sexual assault. A complaint filed by Fanny Agostini, who claimed that the journalist had tried several times to kiss her by force during a press trip to Corsica. Charges denied by the principal concerned. However, the Paris prosecutor’s office and the Altice Media group are opening an investigation. In a press release, the BFM channel announces that he is temporarily removed from the air, replaced by Apolline de Malherbe.
After months of investigation, the Paris prosecutor’s office dismissed the investigation for sexual assault, for prescription of public action. But the penalty falls for the journalist: he will not take over the antenna of BFM or RMC. The Altice Media group has decided to dismiss him. A piece of news that made the media react as well as the team of Do not touch My TV.
This astronomical sum that Jean-Jacques Bourdin will receive
On Monday June 20, Cyril Hanouna and the team of TPMP returned to the Bourdin affair. And Gilles Verdez claimed that the journalist should receive a colossal sum.
The amount he will receive is very substantial. Several hundred thousand euros.
He confided, before specifying thathe will receive a sum around ” 500,000 euros” .
But Guillaume Genton has a completely different version. According to him, the chain would have dismissed Jean-Jacques Bourdin for purely economic reasons.
She would have another argument: the very substantial salary of the journalist. A six-figure annual salary. It was very very expensive for the group. Maybe that’s why the management wanted to part with him.
Anyway, Jean-Jacques Bourdin is happy with this decision.
“I am so happy to be released”
