Henrik Fallesen standing in the middle of the big afskedskagebord. On Wednesday, his last day in the office with DR. After 11 years.
"It is damn well weird when you've been somewhere for so long, and it suddenly is over," says sports commentator.
From the new year called the workplace instead of TV 2, where he especially should be a part of the new sports channel TV 2 Sport X and comment on football and badminton.
"Fortunately it is my own decision, and it does not come on bagggrund of that I have been fired, or something else bad. So perhaps it is in fact the positive aspect of it. And then I think that it is very healthy, that when you have been in the same place for 11 years, that comes out and see how the world otherwise looks and comes out of its comfortzone," says Henrik Fallesen.
He has in recent years combined his kommentatoropgaver at DR with kommentatoropgaver with a streaming service Strive, which in the Danish market, bought the rights to fighting in the Spanish and Italian topligaer.
The rights of the TV 2 is now over, and it opened the door to the big nationwide competitor for Henrik Fallesen. The same did the establishment of TV 2 Sport X as a complement to TV 2 Sport.
"I am pleased to come to come to a place where there are such rich possibilities to unfold within the sports, as I go being up. TV 2 has the more rights than the DR, and now there is a channel more, so there will be plenty to do, It has certainly helped to kindle a desire in me. Also to be with to start something new, something pioneering spirit," says the experienced sportskommentator.
Earlier, however, there was a period of uncertainty', as the Strive with the sale of the rights was standing in front having to close down in Denmark.
"I had to find out whether I was bought or sold. I had to find out, if I were to return and work more at DR - could it be possible to screw up for it again, or would that be a possibility at 2?" says Henrik Fallesen:
"I just had to consider my future and remember to have ice in the stomach. But it should probably go all together, for quite at the ass was not, after all, for I had something with DR.
But now waiting for a firm future of TV 2. The last task for the DR becomes the comment on the traditional skihopkonkurrence from Garmisch-Partenkirchen 1. January. It will be the first time he tries it.
"That has been on my 'bucket list', and it will be very good just to get the the junction the of the when it is now so that was the only and last chance for it. But even though it's probably a bit odd sitting all alone in a hotel room down in Tyskalnd 31. January, I get enough of a more fresh January than ever before," says Henrik Fallesen.Date Of Update: 11 December 2019, 17:00
