After Bettina Böttinger (67) said goodbye, Susan Link (47) and Micky Beisenherz (46) are the sole hosts of the talk show “Kölner Treff”. The 67-year-old presenter finally said goodbye to the cult show in October after 17 years.

But a scheduling conflict is now forcing WDR to make personnel changes. Micky Beisenherz will spend the next few weeks in Australia. The podcaster and author has been presenting the RTL program “I’m a Star – Get Me Out of Here!” for many years. WDR simply says: “In the first three weeks of broadcasting, Micky Beisenherz has to fulfill other obligations.”

However, a replacement has already been provided. Three celebrities will present the show for him as guest presenters alongside Susan Link. On January 19th, “Bergdoktor” star Hans Sigl (54) will step in. According to WDR, the actor is a self-confessed “Kölner Treff” fan and has been a guest on the panel many times. He will welcome, among others, Judith Rakers (47), Peter Lohmeyer (61) and Günter Wallraff (81).

On January 26th, literary critic Elke Heidenreich (80) will once again be doing the honors. She was already the host of the “Kölner Treff” in the early 1980s. She is therefore really looking forward to hosting the show again at her old place of work shortly before her 81st birthday. Your guests include Marijke Amado (69), Nilam Farooq (34) and Bernhard Hoecker (53).

The finale on February 2nd will be actor Wayne Carpendale (46). WDR quoted him as saying that presenting the “Kölner Treff” in his old hometown was a special honor for him. He welcomes, among others, Heino Ferch (60), Wilson Gonzalez (33) and Cheyenne Ochsenknecht (23) as well as Björn Freitag (50).

Beisenherz has been accompanying the jungle camp for almost 15 years. He has been writing the biting comments for the moderators since 2009. This year the RTL show starts its 17th season on January 19th. Among others, actors Heinz Hoenig (72) and Cora Schumacher (47), ex-wife of ex-Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher (48), are moving to the camp.
