Farewell Denise, Hello Genic

Farewell Denise, Hello Genic

This week, in the world of media and celebrities, we saw the hardest exit and the most spectacular arrival in 48 hours.

The departure is of Denis Lewesk, who has prospered after 16 years of broadcasting.

The arrival of Geneic Fournier, the big winner of the television competition There is talent in Canada.

The last time Denise Lewesk turned off the lights, Geneic Fournier stepped into the spotlight. One boarded the show business bus, the other boarded.

Oddly enough, both are from Roberwall in Sagune-Lock-Saint-Jean!

And I have an immense fondness for both of them.


A lot has been said about Denise Lewesk, but we can not stress enough how wonderful an interviewer he is. It takes a lot of skill, a lot of listening to give a voice, as he did to ordinary people who have experienced extraordinary things.

We will not interview an ordinary citizen who has just gone into a terrible tragedy or is facing an extraordinary situation and an experienced politician who will benefit from an army of communication advisers.

Denise’s strength is always finding the right word, formula, to help more embarrassed guests express their feelings by listening with the same respect they have as the big stars.

He developed a tone, manner, and style full of humanity, never laughing at his guests or despising them. Despite the outbreak, he was able to extend his microphone to guests on either side of the fence so that they could maintain the legitimacy of their point of view.

Much more than the caricature some people have made of him by Denise Levesque … I suspect I have never seen his performance.

The Queen sings

For his final appearance, Denise did an interview with the big winner, Genic Fournier There is talent in Canada. We thought he was particularly proud of this native from Sagune-Lock-Saint-Jean.

The success of Geneic Fournier is definitely the story Denise loves to tell. A beneficiary of a palliative care center, he sometimes sings a Celine Dion song with the dying, adopts two children with Downs syndrome, participates in a talent contest … who wins.

A woman who lives modestly for 4 and a half years, but earns $ 150,000 an evening and her first idea is to move into a larger house so that her children can have their own room.

This woman touched me deeply. And do you know what makes me so proud of her? When she won, she first thanked him in French. “Thank you to the people of Sagune-Lock-Saint-Jean in Quebec, Canada for your support. Thank you to my team, thank you to my family, thank you to my lover, thank you to my friends, thank you to my wonderful children. ”

We heard the beautiful accent of Sagene-Lock-Saint-Jean on TV in English Canada.

For Genic, the career begins. She won by singing the Queen’s Anthem, The show must continue.

Even for Denise Lewesk, the “show” stops here.
