« Bravo Paris ! » : We should hear this exclamation in two intonations. The one that is, artistic, rebellious, innovative and festive which made the capital the symbol of the Enlightenment, but also the one of its tragic double, which shattered down its people and sacrificed its heritage in many bloodthirsty outbursts.

Presentation - ​

Holder of a degree in history from the University of Paris VII, Christine Bravo was destined for becoming a professor in this discipline.

After her success in the competitive examination of the École normale supérieure, she obtained her tenure in teaching, worked for two years, and branched out into journalism on the advice of Jean-Paul Sartre by joining the daily Liberation, then Le Matin de Paris. She was then approached by radio media (France Culture, France Inter, Europe 1, RTL) for interventions in cultural programs and debates in which she regularly collaborates.

The exercise earned her the interest of the television channels where she officiates as a columnist in the programs Permission de Minuit, by Frédéric Mitterrand, then Ciel, mon mardi!, by Christophe Dechavanne, up to L’Assiette anglaise by Bernard Rapp. After which she will be in charge of her own concepts: Mille Bravo, Merci et encore Bravo, programs focused on the arts (literature, music, theater, cinema). Frou-frou and Union libre will follow, original infotainment programs combining culture and entertainment

With Sous les jupons de l’histoire, broadcast since 2013 on the Chérie 25 channel, she reconnects with her first passion for the history of France and initiates a project to discover our heritage on a collector’s star. She continues to participate in the legendary program Grosses Têtes on RTL.
