Yves Mourousi (20 July 1942 in Suresnes, Hauts-de-Seine – 7 April 1998 in Paris) was a French television and radio news presenter and journalist. He was the TF1 midday news ("journal de 13h00") anchor during 14 years between 1975 and 1988 and one of the most popular TV presenters at this time.


His surname, Mourousi, comes from his mother, a Russian princess of Phanariote nobility.

During the 1980s, he was a member of the Association de la Presse du Music-Hall et du Cirque, a French press organization gathering journalists, critics, chroniclers, and notable personalities such as Pierre Cardin and the novelist Guy des Cars, interested in Music-hall and Circus, presided over by a well-known journalist, Jacqueline Cartier.[1]

Yves Mourousi also produced special events such as the Festival de la Musique aux Armées on Paris's Place Vendôme, and Michael Stewart and Cy Coleman's hit Broadway musical, Barnum, at the Cirque d’Hiver of Paris, which he also directed (1981).
