He takes the baton from Gordon, confirms a spokesman of the zendergroep. In addition, it allows The Lion to speak with a number of parties that are exciting, and give him a new kind of energy. Grappend: “One thing I know for sure, I can people reassure: it is not a travel program.”

Paul made The Cry of the Lion, Leave the Lion, PaPaul, Sint & De Leeuw, Pauls Puber cooking show, Beautiful! Again the Lion, Very Late and The Quiz. This summer he is in BnnVara still to be seen as the host of Ranking the Stars.


The Lion says BnnVara to be grateful for everything he has. “Successful and less successful. My grades are improvisation and the ability of people happy to move them.”

BNNVARA-media director, Robert Kievit praised The Lion for his unstoppable energy: “With his programs and outspoken personality has Paul first the Vara and later BnnVara the many years of colour. We find it very unfortunate that he leaves, but understand that he is at this point in his career a new step is to make and give him that wholeheartedly.”

However, it is not the first time that The Lion at the broadcaster leaves. At the end of 2001, he made, out of dissatisfaction with the then chaotic zenderprofiel, a controversial move to the NCRV. Here he presented Inn the Lion and like Father, like Son.

Both programs were not the success hoped. Certainly not after the riot on a Call-screen TV parody, in which professor Bob Smalhout gradually in Adolf Hitler changes. Apologies were made and accepted, but ultimately did a weekly imitation of Anneke Grönloh, in which she was dismissed as a decrepit cocaine sniffing ’has-been’ heavily to the drink was, it the das. The NCRV, and The Lion decided the contract to terminate. After a short break, he returned in 2003 back to BnnVara.
