Also on Thursday there will be no new episode of the talk show “Markus Lanz” on ZDF. The broadcaster confirmed this to FOCUS online. The moderator is still sick. The length of Lanz’s absence remains unclear when asked. Instead, ZDF will air “Markus Lanz – America Without Makeup” starting at 11:15 p.m., a rerun of the January 4, 2022 documentary.
Asked by FOCUS online, the editorial staff indicated in the morning that the Thursday evening program would be prepared as usual at an editorial conference in the morning. If Lanz falls ill for a long time, the Mainz broadcaster will have to decide on a possible moderator replacement, not the production company.
