In the course of his long journalistic career, De Schepper was, among other things, editor-in-chief of Blick from 2003 to 2007. Since 2009 he has been deputy editor-in-chief of the AZ Aargauer Zeitung. During this time, Werner De Schepper also gained his first TV experience as a regular presenter of the talk shows "Duell aktuell" and (since August 2012) "Talktäglich" on Tele M1.
