Koos Postema: nothing left of what Van Nieuwkerk had built up

Postema, who was employed by VARA for decades, is also critical.

Better thought should have been given to a good successor to De Wereld Draait Door, he thinks.

“There’s nothing left of it. It’s all been thrown away.

It was a shame, because Matthijs had built it up to a great hour with more than a million viewers and nice subjects.”

Koos Postema still finds it incomprehensible that there is no new talk show in the time slot of De Wereld Draait Door.

“Mortal sin” calls the 89-year-old VARA-coryfee that what Matthijs van Nieuwkerk has built up, is “thrown away”.

He is also not very pleased with the arrival of new talk shows, he shows sunday in The Press Tribune on Radio 1.

“Matthijs has worked with this for ten years,” says Postema about the time slot on working days between 19:00 and 20:00.
