Witteman thought ’quite a long time after’ about the present of Buitenhof and decided to stop. “In the summer there were two new presenters,” said Witteman earlier this month in The world runs by the advent of Jort Kelder and Diana Sailor. “When I told the eindredactrice: is it not wise if I also stop?”
The 71-year-old Witteman found the two liveprogramma on a single day, in addition to Buitenhof the music Podium Witteman, “a little too much of the good.” “The days of sitting in front of it with two broadcasts in your head, that is actually crazy.”
Witteman preferred program about classical music top outer court, but is “sadly” about his departure in the debate and discussion on NPO 1. “The political company I have very high”, he said in DWDD. “I think democracy is a great thing and in order to operate, I have always loved.”
That Witteman stop at Buitenhof does not mean that he will stop with television. With broadcasting BNNVARA he is already talking about a new program. His place in the outer court is taken over by the NRC investigative journalist Hugo Logtenberg. He makes in the new year makes its debut in the program of AVROTROS, BNNVARA and VPRO.
