A graduate in political science and having pursued graduate studies in international relations, Jean-Philippe Wauthier has worked in the media for several years. Freelance journalist for a few years, then radio commentator (Samedi et rien d’autre, Macadam Tribus, Je l’ai vu à la radio), he began his television career in 2010 as a chronicler for various programs on RDI and Radio-Canada, including RDI Matin Week-end and the popular satirical comedy show Infoman.

“It is a great pleasure for me to be able to help the extraordinary people who are at the heart of the En Cœur Foundation. This Foundation is celebrating more than 35 years of existence thanks to the hard work of its many volunteers and employees, people who make a huge difference in the lives of all these children as well as in the life of their parents. It’s with great happiness and an immense honour to be at their side for a new year!”

In 2009, Jean-Philippe became radio host, when he found himself at the helm of the original radio program Le sportnographe, which he conceptualized with his childhood friend Olivier Niquet. Since then, Jean-Philippe has been hosting several shows, events and galas. In 2011, he was entrusted with the animation of the game show La une qui tue, on Télé-Québec. Since 2012, he has been hosting and conceptualizing La soirée est (encore) jeune, at Radio-Canada Première. Previously broadcast only on Friday evenings for one hour, it’s now the weekend radio 5 to 7, in addition to being on ARTV since the fall of 2015.

On television, Jean-Philippe Wauthier co-hosted the popular weekly Deux hommes en or (Télé-Québec) with Patrick Lagacé, from 2013 to 2017. He also won a Gémeaux award in 2017 for the best animation of a social interest show. Since 2015, he has been the host of the entertaining program Les dieux de la danse, on Radio-Canada. In 2017, he hosted MTL as part of Montreal’s 375th anniversary, on Télé-Québec, and Le beau dimanche, on Radio-Canada.
