Sports presenter celebrates her TV comeback
The journalist and moderator Monica Lierhaus returns to German television. She will appear in front of the camera for RTL in the future.
Monica Lierhaus (52) will soon appear on television again. Again Broadcaster RTL reports on its website, “several projects” are being planned, with which the journalist and presenter should return to TV. Between 2004 and 2009, Lierhaus was responsible, among other things, for moderating the “Sportschau”.
One of the first assignments for Lierhaus on RTL should soon be the Special Olympics in Berlin. A theme week on “inclusion” is planned, during which Lierhaus will report.
Monica Lierhaus is “an extraordinary woman”
Stephan Schmitter, program director at RTL Germany, also confirms the moderator’s commitment. “An extraordinary woman and a very good journalist. It’s nice to see that she is very keen to return to the camera for us,” he says in an interview with the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung”. He specifies that the planned projects with Lierhaus are formats in the sports sector.
In 2019, Lierhaus announced her TV break for the first time. “I’m 49 now. When I’m 50, it’s over in front of the camera. I’ll have to think about something,” she said said in an interview with the “Bild am Sonntag” at the time. In 2009, the presenter was diagnosed with an aneurysm while preparing for eye surgery. There were complications during the removal, and Lierhaus had to be placed in an artificial coma for four months. In rehab, she had to learn to swallow, eat, and move again.
