Erik de Zwart played an important role during the contract discussions between Jan Slagter and weatherman Piet Paulusma. That said Slagter on Radio 1 on Wednesday.
According to the Omroep Max boss, De Zwart took over the role of manager, after Paulusma's manager died earlier this year.
"It is always difficult for a presenter to talk about money," Slagter said in the Tastemakers program on NPO Radio 1. "Eventually Erik de Zwart, 'Mister Top-40', came to me and said:" Joh , I know Piet well. Can't we make a deal quickly? " And within three weeks it was finished. "
Slagter and Paulusma had long been in talks about a possible appointment with Omroep Max, after the well-known weatherman was told in early 2019 that his contract with SBS6 would not be extended.
Paulusma to be seen from next year
Paulusma can be seen at Omroep MAX from next year. He will present the weather in the Time for MAX program. On days when this program is not broadcast, Paulusma still gets time for the weather forecast on the eve.
Piets Weer will also be heard on the radio every 12:30 hours on MAX at NPO Radio 5: from Monday to Thursday in Haandrikman! and on Fridays in TinekeShow .
