However, the state radio expects several new features in its schedule to maintain a good position in the ratings race, it was revealed on Monday.

You’ll have to wait until September 5th to hear the two new daytime releases, namely “The Day (is still young)” from 1 p.m. moderated by Jean-Philippe Wauthier and his accomplices and “Culture will always be” piloted at 1 p.m.: 30 p.m. by Emilie Perreault. The latter will welcome Dany Laferrière from Port-au-Prince for his first meeting, the title of which is inspired by the famous author’s words – “When everything falls, culture remains!” – after the terrible 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

In the evening, three new features will be presented on weekdays from 9 p.m., after the programs already known to listeners. Every Tuesday, beginning September 6, Karyne Lefebvre hosts “Tell Me What You Read…”, a weekly literary gathering. Stéphane Leclair comes every Wednesday with “Les grands interviews”. Finally, every Thursday, Paul Journet and Rose-Aimée Automne T. Morin offer “Lesidées folles”, a program in which they reflect on a variety of topics.

These three new programs are preceded by “L’heure du monde”, “Moteur de recherche” and “Aujourd’hui l’histoire”, which are back on the air.

At the weekends, Franco Nuovo takes over the departed Joël Le Bigot with “Draw me one morning” on Saturdays and Sundays, while Marie-Louise Arsenault begins the adventure of his new talk show “Everything can happen” on September 10 at 4 p.m.

As for Catherine Perrin, she will return with a new concept dedicated to the environment, dubbed “Green Light”. Jean-Sébastien Girard will arrive with “Jeannot BBQ” and Rebecca Makonnen will present “Oil on the fire” with several collaborators including Christiane Charette.

The new ICI Musique program starts on August 22nd and will notably be marked by the arrival of Claudine Prévost (“En orbit”, Saturday at 2pm) and Samian “Minotan!” (Saturday at 9pm).
