Asked directly – without detours: “RTL Direkt”, the new news format in RTL primetime with Jan Hofer, starts on August 16. Every Monday to Thursday at 10:15 pm, “RTL Direkt” offers studio guests and a team of reporters a comprehensive view of the issues that affect Germany in 20 minutes. From autumn onwards, Pinar Atalay will complement the team and present the program alternately with Jan Hofer.
“RTL Direkt is not just another news or talk format. The program combines the best of both worlds. We are very pleased that we were able to win over Jan Hofer and Pinar Atalay for moderation,”said Gerhard Kohlenbach, editor-in-chief of news at RTL NEWS. “The two of them will bring people up to date in a compact, direct and understandable way, so that they are well informed and also say goodbye to the night with a wink.”
The news offers will also be expanded during the day: In addition to a new edition of “RTL Aktuell” at 4:45 pm, there will soon be another edition of “Explosiv” at 5:00 pm. In addition, “Punkt 12” was extended by one hour to 3 pm.
