“Nicolas Hulot – is a journalist, reporter, animator, writer and French politician. After a series of odd jobs, he became a photojournalist for the Sipa news agency in 1973. Through this profession, he made reports and travels around the world, before starting a career in the media.
He started on France Inter then he made television with the children’s program “Les visiteurs du mercredi”. In 1987, TF1 hired him to present “Ushuaia, the magazine of the extreme” that makes him one of the media symbols of the preservation of nature. He created the “Ushuaia Foundation”, which partners large groups like L’Oréal or EDF as well as TF1.
The program becomes very popular and “Ushuaïa” becomes a brand declined in TV channel, range of body care products, then monthly magazine in 2006. While ecology is at the center of the concerns of society, Nicolas Hulot takes advantage of his notoriety and his image to be heard on the political scene.
After being advised by Jacques Chirac or Laurent Fabius, he launched the “Ecological Pact” in 2006 to impose ecology in the next presidential campaign. He is then expected to be a candidate for the 2007 election. Close to the Greens party, he denies however to have any national ambition, and does not wish to support a candidate although he wants to have influence on the decisions taken by the government in terms of ecology.
Very appreciated by the French, he became in 2011 declared candidate for the presidential election of the following year. But he is beaten by Eva Joly during the primary party ecologist. His involvement in politics – which had then embarrassed his employer TF1 – had then caused his suspension of antenna. At the end of December 2011, TF1 announces that it has put an end to the contract linking the one who is one of the favorite hosts of the French on the channel, after several months of floating about his future on the air.”
