Weatherman Frank Deboosere announces retirement: “I’m 64, this is the farewell tour”

Within a year, weatherman Frank Deboosere (64) disappears from the tube, because Flanders’ most famous weatherman is retiring. He announced this on Saturday in the Radio 2 program ‘Weekwatchers’ and is confirmed by the VRT.

“I’m 64. This is the farewell tour,” Fran Deboosere told Ruben Van Gucht in the Radio 2 program Weekwatchers. “Frank is permanently employed by us and will indeed turn 65 next year, at which point his pension will start,” it says at the VRT. This means that he stops at both Radio 2 and all VRT networks. Deboosere will therefore no longer present the television weather forecast. “A definitive farewell date has not yet been set. Just like the follow-up, we also have to look at that,” it still sounds. According to VRT, there is no question of a freelance opportunity for Deboosere to keep him employed.

That Deboosere will soon have to retire, once he is 65, is in analogy with the past farewell moments of news anchor Martine Tanghe and sports reporter Michel Wuyts. They too had to leave the VRT once they reached retirement age.
