Matthijs van Nieuwkerk is under fire after a revealing article in De Volkskrant. The former presenter of ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ is said to have behaved cross-border against editors of the TV program.
According to employees, it involved “extreme outbursts of anger and public humiliation”.
The NTR canceled the recordings of the on Saturday Top 2000 Quiz, which is also presented by Van Nieuwkerk. According to the broadcaster, this is not the right time to record a ‘celebratory quiz’, due to the ‘dynamics that arose after the publication in De Volkskrant’.
It is not yet clear what the consequences will be for the program. The quiz should be broadcast in December. The Top 2000 à Go-Go, another program by Van Nieuwkerk, will continue. The team behind that show does not recognize itself in the allegations.
What do you think? Must Van Nieuwkerk off the tube because of his behavior at DWDD?
