Calenda: “Rai dismantled”
“What a shame. Rai dismantled in content but not in the worst practices and in cost (direct and indirect) for citizens. All due to a tragic confusion between hegemony and egomania.” Action leader Carlo Calenda wrote this on social media, in reference to Corrado Augias’ decision to leave Rai for La7.
From Fazio to Gramellini, those who left Rai
There are several hosts who have left Rai in recent months, starting with Fabio Fazio who landed on Nove. “I never said that they kicked us out. I never used the noun ‘purge’. We were not kicked out in any way” from Rai, Fazio said.
Massimo Gramellini also moved to La7 and told Adnkronos: “There is no political reason” behind his choice. The journalist hosts the new program ‘In altre Parole’, broadcast on Saturdays.
Bianca Berlinguer instead moved to Mediaset. “Maybe someone will be surprised to find me on this channel and I’m a little surprised too”, she opened the first episode of E’ semper Cartabianca on her debut on Rete4.
