On November 25, Fuji Television announced that Yurika Mita (35), the anchor of “Mr. Sunday,” will graduate from the program on January 29, 2023, as she will be on maternity leave. It was announced that Yutaka Yamazaki (35) would be appointed as her successor.
Nowadays, Yutaka Yamazaki is one of the most popular MCs for Fuji Television’s information programs, and her popularity is so strong that she is now split in two with Yumi Nagashima (31). She has been the anchor of “Nonstop! and “Mezamashi TV,” and from 2018 until March of last year, she served as MC of “Tokudane! and “Tokudane!” with Tomoaki Ogura (75) from 2018 until March of last year, and currently serves as the MC for “Pop-Up!
He is currently the facilitating MC of “Pop-Up! was the best at presenting information, and he had a good reputation within the station. Mr. Yamazaki is dexterous and has the ability to ad-lib and respond to sudden news, and his ability to get others involved in the studio talk is top-notch. He also had a great ability to get others involved in the studio talk and even Mr. Ogura took a glance at him. (Former staff member of “Tokudane!)
Mr. Ogura’s appointment to “Mr. Sunday” is described by a former staff member of “Tokudane!
Mr. Sunday” has been handled by Christel Takigawa (45), Keiko Tsubakihara (37), and Announcer Mita, who are the main news announcers. In that sense, this is definitely a great selection. Although her compatibility with anchor Seiji Miyane (59) is still unknown, I feel that she will be able to give more rhythm to her talk by becoming a person who can pick on Mr. Miyane more than the announcers who have been in charge of news reporting up to this point. Yamazaki may bring out a new charm in Ms. Miyane.
Yamazaki’s new charm is sure to blossom as well.
