Harry Roselmack, born 20 March 1973[1] in Tours, is a French radio and TV journalist of Martiniquan descent.

Career[edit]

Harry Roselmack graduated with degrees in History (DEUG) and Journalism (DUT).

He began to work for a local radio station, during this period. Then, he wrote some sports papers for a regional news paper La Nouvelle République du Centre-Ouest. Roselmack has worked with Radio France, in 2000 (France Bleu, France Info) before joining Canal+.

In 2006, he was appointed official summer replacement for Patrick Poivre d'Arvor, the evening news anchorman, by TF1. This decision triggered a number of moves between the major networks. Thomas Hugues, who has held this position for many years, left the channel, followed by his wife Laurence Ferrari, who was the official summer replacement of Claire Chazal. Mélissa Theuriau was offered Ferrari's job which she turned down the offer, leaving for M6. Eventually, TF1 hired Anne-Sophie Lapix to succeed Ferrari. She will also host Sept à huit together with Roselmack, a show which was formerly hosted by Hugues and Ferrari.

Harry Roselmack debuted on TF1 on July 17, 2006, becoming the channel's first black evening news anchorman,[2] and garnering as much as 44.8% of the audience (over 8 million viewers).
