Souvenirs and tears

His last attendance at the office began with a bang, around 7:30 in the morning. Pierre Bruno visited the “Salut Bonjour” group, and then, as usual, went down the stairs to the editing room on the tenth floor. That’s when he spotted souvenirs during his trip and couldn’t hold back his tears at times.

On each floor, people were there to congratulate him, shake hands with him and wish him a happy retirement. Among them, there were such partners as Mario Dumont, Colette Provencher, Pierre-Olivier Zappa and his wife Jeannette Saint-Cyr as well as people involved in the Charles Bruno Foundation.

“It’s full of memories, it’s my life that we saw there, it’s my relationship with the audience and with my co-workers. That bond, I just understood it, it’s as if I just realized it today.

I woke up this morning thinking of Jean Lapierre and all the amazing honors he held after his death, I’ve heard during my life. There’s something that makes us bigger than life, but I’m like, ‘Take it!’

He acknowledged the constant support of his wife Jeannette Saint-Cyr, with whom he now plans to travel. “She is a woman who has been very resilient, and probably sacrificed a lot of her career to accompany what I had to live through and, above all, to make up for my absence, because I had to go to work.”

“Forty-six years as a news anchor and 11 years at the famous TVA Nouvelles studio. There is a key point that you inspired and informed us and it is also essential that young people remember all of that. […] “It is a great honor to call the studio TVA Novels, guess by its name Pierre Bruno’s studio,” said Pierre-Carl Bellado before Pierre Bruno, accompanied by his wife Jeannette Saint-Cyr.

There is a tremendous amount of excitement here in the editing room. This is where we see the greatness, the presence of Pierre Bruno, because we feel calm, serene and peace with this decision. “I think I cried four times this morning,” anchor Julie Marco said.

“Every evening he was with them in their living room, he was there when everyone was cooking, when the children were crying, when homework was not possible, when the whirlwind of life took hold of everyone. The quiet force of the house, that told us the news, what we live today was enormous. “There is no public figure who lasts so long, in this way, and leaves with so much love,” said TVA Nouvelles producer Michel Lamarche.

It’s such a huge piece that leaves a huge part of my career, he was the one who made me grow,” director told TVA Nouvelles Éric Gauthier.

“When I was told I was going to work with Pierre Bruno, I was intimidated, happy to take on the challenge and, above all, honored to be now leading the appointments. Every day he went to the kitchen and living room at the Quebecers,” said his office manager Catherine Legari.

said the Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief of TVA and LCN, Xavier Brassard Bedard.

TVA Nouvelles Executive Producer Maxime Landry argued, “To announce that Rene Levsk has been elected until the pandemic, this is a history book that leaves us.”

“It’s an extraordinary career such a long career, in the same position, reminds me of Walter Cronkite in the United States who has been the dominant figure for several decades. Mr. Bruno, it is a record that has been kept with a lot of calm despite the fact that the news is tough, and the world is changing” , said UQAM Professor of Communications Bernard Motulscu, who also referred to his “stability” and the fact that he was a “master” to many Quebecers.
