Why did Irena Dziedzic lose her job at TVP?
As the “Pomponik” portal reminds, Irena Dziedzic was the face of TVP for three decades. It is enough to mention that during her work, the presidents of the public broadcaster changed as many as ten times, and there was even a change in the political system in our country. No wonder the presenter was called the “iron lady” of television. However, she too had to leave eventually. What was the reason for her dismissal and what did Ewa Łętowska have in common with the case?
Irena Dziedzic “Iron Lady” TVP
Ireana Dziedzic was associated with Telewizja Poland for thirty years. She was supposed to have a decisive opinion on many issues, and even the presidents of the station took into account her opinion. Anyone who fell for her had to reckon with unpleasant consequences. Jerzy Połomski recalled that “if she didn't like something, it had to disappear”.
Many of Irena Dziedzic's co-workers emphasized that she had an extremely difficult character, which was particularly evident when she perceived competition in someone. She hosted the “Tele-Echo” program, which for a quarter of a century enjoyed great sympathy from viewers. It wasn't the only show she hosted.
Nail in the coffin
Irena Dziedzic's cooperation with the public broadcaster ended in 1991. The legendary presenter blamed Łętowska for her dismissal. Apparently, the relationship between the two ladies was not the best. The “Iron Lady” of TVP was convinced that Łętowska knew “the plan to make her interviews disappear from the air”.
Proof of this, according to Dziedzic, was to be the “development of events” and the final dismissal of her from television which was supposed to take place over the phone. The information was given to her by “one of the editorial functionaries”.
Was that really the case? It's hard to say because the actual reasons for the star's separation from TVP have not been revealed so far. The official reason was that heir had reached retirement age.
What do you think about the whole situation?
