Berchtold and Bhrampuri leave G&G. What’s going on with the SRF offer?

Nicole Berchtold and Salar Bahrampuri turn their backs on “G & G – Faces and Stories”. However, they remain with the SRF.

Nicole Berchtold decided in March to say goodbye to SRF Magazine. Now Salar Bahrampuri will also leave. About the reasons for the end.

Notable departures have been the daily ranking at SRF in recent years. But with Nicole Berchtold and Salar Bahrampuri, two of the leading characters on Faces and Stories, this is not a final change for SRF-Aus, but an internal one.

Berchtold holds a master’s degree in Psychology

At the end of March it was announced: Nicole Berchtold has given up her place in the G&G office after 15 years. The mother of two will continue to coordinate her own “SRF bi de Lüt” formats such as “Family Matters” and “Country Women’s Kitchen” as well as “Hinter den Hecken”.

Nicole Berchtold wants to complete a master’s degree in psychology in addition to her TV job.

Bahrampuri is working on a new documentary

Berchtold’s TV companion Salar Bahrampuri would also like a change of perspective. The Graubünden native has run Faces and Stories since 2015 (formerly known as “Glanz und Gloria”). In the future he will focus on his sobriety “SRF bi de Lüt – Live” and will begin work on a new SRF documentary in late summer.

In 2019, Salar Bahrampuri produced the “DOK” series “Salar’s Journey to his Iranian Roots – God willing” for “SRF DOK” and in 2021 “Reporter” about his fear of heights.

“Faces and Stories” starting point

Faces and Stories editor-in-chief Paula Biason has to part with two well-known mediums. Is the wave of layoffs related to the change in the concept of coordination? The entertainment magazine not only changed its name in mid-December 2020, but also modified its content. Away from “Copley’s coverage” towards Society magazine which has more stories in the fields of music, film, theatre, literature, art and sports but also about science and politics.

No, the change of direction had no effect on ending the two, says Editor-in-Chief Paula Biason “20 minutes”They are both very talented and popular personalities. The Conversation has also become aware of this, which explains why both programs are coordinated there as well. I see the change of Salars and Nicole as much of a talented editorial team. With us you get to experience moderation with hard work every day. But at some point you want to reap the rewards of the stressful daily news and host a big evening show on Saturday.”

And Biason was overwhelmed with requests.
