The time of retirement, announced in full bulletin on March 24, has finally arrived for the man who has just celebrated his 70th birthday, 46 years after entering Télé-Métropole. Adding up his years spent on radio at the start of his career in Victoriaville – his hometown –, in Trois-Rivières and at CKAC in Montreal, Pierre Bruneau will have covered 50 years of daily and live news, which constitutes a impressive brand that will be hard to match or surpass.

Of course, as Pierre Bruneau has made a specialty of covering the elections since 1976, in particular by hosting the now traditional "Face-à-face" presented on TVA and LCN, he will be back this fall for the Quebec election campaign. . Afterwards, he intends to enjoy life by traveling with his wife and accomplice of the past 49 years, Ginette St-Cyr, in addition to continuing his philanthropic commitments, in particular through the Charles-Bruneau Foundation.

It is Sophie Thibault who will succeed Pierre Bruneau at the end of the summer at the helm of TVA Nouvelles at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. It's a great challenge for the anchor, who spent 20 years at the helm of TVA Nouvelles at 10 p.m. In May 2002, her appointment made it possible to break a glass ceiling, because the journalist who joined TVA in 1988 then became the first woman named anchor of a major newsletter in North America. At the start of the school year, she will be replaced at the end of the evening by Pierre-Olivier Zappa, a rising star of information at TVA.
