Since his departure, the journalist has retired. This Monday, June 5, he was the guest of Jordan De Luxe in the show At Jordan’s, broadcast on C8. He then reconsidered his departure from Telematinas well as the salary he received and the amount of his current pension.

Laurent Bignolas then made other confidences: ” I left Télématin, because they no longer had confidence in me! When we talked about new formulas, I understood that I was no longer in it“. At the time, he knew he was no longer going to be at the show’s presentation. “Removing me was in the papers. I gave France Télévisions its freedom, I am no longer a presenter on this group”, he said. He then addressed a few words to his former colleagues: “I’m going to tell the Télématin team: I love you, I’m sad to see that they put themselves in such a state! »

On the same occasion, Laurent Bignolas poured out on the salary he received for the show. “I earned 6,500 euros per month on Télématin”, he confided to Jordan de Luxe.
