Jérôme Chapuis

Born near Paris, Jérôme studied economics at PARIS IX – Dauphine University and journalism at the Ecole Supérieure de Journalisme in Lille


From 2000 to 2011, he worked for French radio station Europe 1.

Since September 2012, he has served as Director and Anchorman of “Le Grand Jury” on RTL (France’s leading radio station) and LCI (the TV news channel of French leader TF1). This one-hour interview program is the oldest and one of the most respected political talk shows in the country.

In addition to his responsibilities at “Le Grand Jury,” he is Associate Editor of RTL’s political desk and has covered two presidential campaigns. As the Elysée correspondent for Europe 1 and then RTL, he was a privileged witness of many official visits and international summits. Among his best memories as a young journalist remain Sarkozy’s visit to Tripoli and Dakar (July 2007); the UN general assembly in New York City (September 2008, just after the collapse of Lehman Brothers); and President Obama’s visit to Caen for the commemoration of D-Day, and the G8 and G20 summits (Washington, Pittsburgh, Cannes).

From his experiences in the French political arena, he has written two books: Les Etés meurtriers (Plon, 2011, with Y. Goosz) and Le Naufragé (Flammarion, 2012, with B. Sportouch)—an inside story of Sarkozy’s lost campaign.

He is married and has 3 children.
