“This program should have continued,” said Özcan, pointing out that Today Inside appealed to a certain target group that had not had a mouthpiece on TV for years. “They are the only ones who fill a talk show in a certain way and others don’t. There is a great need for that way, about 700,000 to 900,000 people watch it. The target group needs that, whatever you think of it. finds.”
Today Inside scored, according to Özcan, among other things because Wilfred Genee, Johan Derksen and René van der Gijp could always give their ‘unsweetened opinion’. “No pre-scripted conversations and often over the line with all the associated consequences. But also recognisability among the population.”
Özcan notices it himself as he walks through the market. Since he was in Today Inside appeared addressed by other people than before. “That has to do with the social class that feels served by these men.”
On Friday afternoon it became clear that Johan will stop working for . as a result of the commotion surrounding the much-discussed candle incident Today Inside. Wilfred Genee and René van der Gijp have also resigned. The continued existence of the program is therefore uncertain.
Rob Goossens is also disappointed Today Inside disappears from the tube.
