No Matthijs van Nieuwkerk at Top 2000 Quiz and Top 2000 à Go-Go

Together with the presenter, the NTR has decided that he will be absent this year in response to the Volkskrant article in which former employees of De Wereld Draait Door (DWDD) speak about ‘transgressive behaviour’ by Van Nieuwkerk.

Impact debate

“Despite the fact that the situation at the Top 2000 cannot be compared to that of De Wereld Draait Door, the debate that is now being conducted in response to the publications also has an impact on the team of the Top 2000 and the image of the program”, says NTR media director Willemijn Francissen.

De Volkskrant spoke to dozens of former DWDD employees about ‘cross-border behaviour’ by, among others, the 62-year-old Van Nieuwkerk. According to the employees, these were ‘extreme outbursts of anger and public humiliation’.

Dozens of employees fell ill because of the working conditions. Van Nieuwkerk resigned his work at BNNVARA yesterday.
