Several broadcasters have to go through an obituary in the newspapers, including The Telegraph, Mies Bouwman will be commemorated. The former presenter died on Monday at age 88.
AVROTROS calls Bouwman, ’the mother of television, “and makes” a deep bow ” for her. “She stood in the middle of the spotlight, but continued to keep an eye for the other. An icon she was, by himself. Mies was our example and our neighbor at the same time.”
BNNVARA speaks of ‘the pioneer and queen of television’, KRO-NCRV, praised her “warm personality” and Broadcaster MAX calls Bouwman a “legend.” Also the NPO commemorates Bouwman in the newspapers. “They covenant the Netherlands like no other, sharp and engaging, versatile and loving.”
