Tribute by Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister of Culture and Communication, to Francis Tyskiewicz
Francis Tyskiewicz passed away on January 30 at the age of 56.
A true historical figure of France Info, he participated, twenty years ago
the launch of the continuous news radio, idea
new promise for the best future.
Successively reporter, sports journalist, editor in chief, he was
since 2009 editor of this branch he knew
by heart and who owes him, to a large extent, to have become one of the
most listened in France. Francis Tyskiewicz possessed at the highest
the gift of passing on, sharing the fruits of
his experience, his know-how, his profession. He was a man
and a man of great heart.
My thoughts turn to his loved ones, his family, his
employees at Radio France and the French editorial board
Info, all those who worked with him, and who know what this
iconic antenna owes it.
