205 employees in the DR on Wednesday became the mind - or in plain English fired. Among those who got the dreaded call from the boss, was DR-icon Jens Olaf Jersild.
- I was mind yesterday. But, there are back, is that I'm such a, that have a very long termination. And the programs continue the strange enough, says 58-year-old Jens Olaf Jersild, who each week sends 'Jersild without spin' and 'Jersild on Trump' on DR2.
He has one year of termination and has an agreement with the DR that his programs will continue at least until next summer. Maybe longer.
- I look with excitement at what is going to happen. The programs continue. It is core public service, and they are really cheap to produce. We are two people, who are doing two programmes a week, which together have between 250,000 and 300,000 viewers. I'm excited to see what they would send instead, " says Jens Olaf Jersild and continues:
- I think that it is something you should keep an eye on. Whether it is a road, the DR choose to walk down. On closing the cheap programs and rates on the big bureaucratic solutions, says the experienced host who is very collected after Wednesday's firing.
- DR would like to continue with your programs, but have fired you. The feeling it gives you? Are you angry, disappointed or hurt?
- no, No! I am far past. I have tried it, which is worse in my time at the DR. So the kind of feelings I trykimprægneret against, says Jens Olaf Jersild.
- Were you prepared or were you surprised that you were the mind?
- On the one hand, I was surprised, for I had not expected it. I simply can't see that it can pay for the DR to fire someone behind a so cheap and the set program. On the other side, so there is nothing that can surprise me with the DR, says the tv host.

Since Jens Olaf Jersild was fired, several of his colleagues sent supportive greetings to him. And even if he is not knocked out of the message, warming it.
- It is sweet of people. I am very glad, says Jersild, after the mind-the message went out in the sun and drank a beer with his mate from the programmes.
- It is with a heavy heart that I must say that we are not reaching to be ready with our programs for this weekend. Next week is thanksgiving, but then we continue our work, and I am pleased to see my viewers again. Then we shall see where it all ends. I have been through many ups and downs in my time in the DR. I can't really find out what that is. Whether it is good or bad. But I can at least say that we are working on, " says Jens Olaf Jersild, who has been employed in the DR since the summer of 1984.
