Angélique Wälchli in a press release: "Already at my first "Tagesschau" visit I would have liked to stay the same: a great team that does sensational work in my eyes and that day after day. I think it would be great to soon become a member of this editorial team. After many exciting years behind the radio microphone, I'm now looking forward to working in front of and behind the TV camera."
