After the suspension of You and I for a Coronavirus case, Pierluigi Diaco talks about the future of the transmission
After the suspension of the Me and You program due to a case of Coronavirus, Pierluigi Diaco talks about the future of transmission. The journalist told Adnkronos that he had undergone the swab and the serological test, but that he tested negative. "Fortunately, both the swab and the serological test, which I underwent this morning, are negative – he revealed -. My thoughts go to the colleague who tested positive and to my team. The positive colleague will now undergo a new control swab ”.
"I still don't know if we will be able to get back on the air for the last episodes of 'You and I' scheduled until Friday 4 September – he added, speaking of the future of the Rai show -. What matters right now is everyone's safety and health. I am in contact with the management of Rai1, whom I thank for their constant proximity, to understand how to proceed ". The broadcast was temporarily replaced by La Vita in Diretta Estate conducted by Andrea Delogu and Marcello Masi.
A few hours after the news of the suspension of Me and You, Diaco had commented on what happened in connection with the show. “You, Pierluigi, are a much loved Rai face – explained the wife of Francesco Montanari – and therefore, if it happens that this week for safety you cannot go back on the air, surely we will see you on Rai with your program. Reassure us ".
“Thank you – the journalist replied -, but this is not me who can say it. It has to be a network manager to decide that. Beyond everything, I conducted this program with great passion, with great love and great respect for Rai1 viewers. Like all people who do this job, I also have my character and my edges, but I am sure that the people who shared this experience with me can testify to the enormous passion we put into it. I'm sorry about this bad twist of fate ”.
The Viale Mazzini company has decided not to renew Me and You, which has taken over from Come to Me, a cult program conducted by Caterina Balivo. Pierluigi Diaco, however, would have already presented new projects for the next television season.
