Also goodbye Jort Kelder
The 2022 YBA edition will see a farewell to presenter Jort Kelder. ,,It feels like saying goodbye to your critical buddy. Jort has contributed a lot of positive things to the YBA and also used his network for us. We would have preferred to continue with him, but yes, Jort became an official at Op1.''
Jort Kelder is currently a presenter on talk show Op1 on public television. Hence this joke. The consequence of this work is that he is not allowed to present for another broadcaster. Palmers: ,,That is a pity, because Jort kept us on our toes. Contractually it is therefore unfortunately not possible to keep Jort involved with the Young Business Award."
The organization of the YBA is sorry that Jort Kelder cannot be retained as presenter. Palmers: ,,Jort Kelder cannot really be replaced as a personality. He is fast, always has his reaction ready and at the right moment he says the right things.''
In doing so, the organization of the Young Business Award chooses to focus entirely on the television program. "The YBA will continue fully as a TV program this year and this will be recorded early next year. This year, in cooperation with our partners, we are making the switch, in which from now on the TV program is the focus of the Young Business Award and the live event with visitors is secondary."
