Journalistic career[edit]

President of France Télévisions[edit]

Upon termination of Marc Tessier's presidency on 22 August 2005, De Carolis was appointed president of France Télévisions. During his tenure, the 2008 reform that cut advertisements from 8pm through 6am everyday and made the French President the direct appointer of the president of France Télévisions was adopted. He also oversaw the transformation of the state broadcaster into a multi-brand consolidated company: what have previously been subsidiary companies with distinctive brands and operating revenues became integrated parts of France Télévisions. He held the position until 23 August 2010.

Mayor of Arles[edit]

On 28 June 2020, he was elected mayor of Arles, his native town, as an independent candidate.
