Paul Witteman leaves Pauw & Witteman late night tv talk show

One of the Netherlands’ most popular television programmes, the daily talk show Pauw & Witteman, will go off air at the end of the current season after eight years.

Jeroen Pauw will be back after the summer with another late night talk show in the same time slot, while Paul Witteman will make new programmes about music, politics and science, public broadcaster Vara said.

‘After eight years and some 1,000 shows I have realised I need something new,’ Witteman is quoted as saying by broadcaster Nos. Witteman, 67, will continue to present the Sunday political programme Buitenhof.
