Léon Mercadet passed away on 22 June in Paris at the age of 64.
He was for twenty years one of the major signatures of the magazine Actuel before animating "I like Icare" on i-Télé and establishing himself as a columnist of "La Matinale" of Canal+.
Léon Mercadet was a journalist of great demand, an astonishing debater, a spirit who knew how to think outside the box.
Born as a teacher, he had this gift to make people love what he loved and to share the object of his passions with as many people as possible.
I extend my sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
