TV: Isabelle Ithurburu is leaving Canal+ for TF1 and will soon replace a well-known presenter

September 8 As the Rugby World Cup kicks off in France, Isabelle Ithurburu, an iconic rugby figure on Canal+, will be leaving the encrypted channel to join TF1.

After years on Canal+, the rugby stalwart will be packing his bags for another channel on the encrypted channel. 40-year-old Isabelle Ithurburu should, according to our colleagues from a Parisianto be broadcast on TF1.

To make up for the lack of female figures in its programming, it is putting a familiar face on the front page and is already laying the groundwork for its Rugby World Cup coverage, which will be largely broadcast on air.

Dear @IsaIthurburu, many thanks for these 14 years of cooperation! From your debut on INFOSPORT+ to the big CANAL RUGBY CLUB show and to the next TOP 14 final on June 17, you will remain one of the faces of the CANAL+ group.

Good way!

Having so far been busy presenting Canal Rugby Club every weekend, Isabelle Ithurburu will now take the helm of TF1’s Le Mag de la Coupe du monde. So, on September 8 the opening event in France will cover the top twenty matches of the competition and almost all of France’s XV.

She will replace Nikos Aliagas in 50′ Inside

always according to ParisianIsabelle Ithurburu’s arrival is primarily to replace Nikos Aliagas in the presentation of the legendary Saturday afternoon show 50′ Inside.

The post was once offered to Faustine Bollaert, who wants to stay at France 2, but in the end it is the native of Pau who will take over from Nika, the face of the show since 2007.

Nikos Aliagas also expressed his desire to pass the baton to a woman. It’s a new challenge, away from the sports fields, that awaits one who will surely remain the face of rugby on Canal+ for a long time to come.
