The 48-year-old canceled his RBB show “Chez Krömer” unplanned in front of the camera. On Instagram he explains why it happened.

The TV presenter Kurt Krömer (48) recently stopped having fun with the talk show “Chez Krömer”. “My body eventually rejected this format. I noticed it,” said Krömer in an Instagram video. “I got up in the morning in a bad mood. I went to the station in a bad mood. I sat through the editorial meetings in a bad mood. I went to the show in a bad mood. I went home in a bad mood. And I was in a bad mood Went back to bed in a bad mood. I don’t know if you’ll see the pattern. But for me, there was an awful lot of bad mood involved and I don’t want that.”

It was announced on Monday that the award-winning talk show would be discontinued by Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (RBB). The series ended Tuesday after seven seasons and more than 40 episodes.

“It was never boring”

“What we did there was very successful, but just because it was successful now, I don’t want to struggle through it,” said Krömer. “It wasn’t always fun. But – very important to me – it wasn’t boring. We have to be honest about that.” He loved and hated the show. “And this has to stop.” The idea for the format came from another phase of his life.

The producer Friedrich Küppersbusch, whom Krömer praised as a “luminary figure of journalism”, and he produced 41 episodes as a “dream team”. “The order was four. (…) I said: We’re going to do four episodes now and then we’ll be fired for gross mischief. Then we’ll be kicked out because there are no more guests. But that’s really a line-up of ass fiddles standing in front of our door, begging, scratching, because everyone wanted this format in the end, I don’t understand that. But that doesn’t matter either. This is also more a case for psychologists. “You should stop when it’s most beautiful , even if it was never nice,” said the Berliner.

Looking at the reactions online, Krömer said: “It was a bit like being able to watch your own funeral as the others mourned you. You know, when they stand by the coffin and say: “Well, it was not everything he did was bad. He was a good guy. we loved him Maybe he should have been told that earlier. But he’s dead now.”
