Bodo Hugo Hauser (born February 23, 1946 in Krefeld , † July 22, 2004 ibid) was a German journalist , presenter and one of the two program managers of the television station Phoenix .


Bodo Hauser's father was a tie manufacturer in Krefeld. Hauser attended the Fichte-Gymnasium Krefeld and studied law and political science from 1968 to 1972 at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg , the University of Lausanne , the University of Cambridge and the University of Bonn . 1984 followed a supplementary study at Harvard University .

From 1973 to 1976 he was a permanent freelancer in the ZDF studio in Bonn . He then worked for ZDF as a correspondent in Düsseldorf . In 1978 he became deputy head of the Länderspiegel magazine in Mainz . From 1981 to 1987 he was seen in front of the camera for the first time at Bonn Perspektiven . From 1988 to 1993 he was at Studio 1 .

He became known through the ZDF political magazine Frontal , which he has moderated together with Ulrich Kienzle since 1993 and in which he mostly presented a conservative position. The show was characterized by the ironic and humorous moderation of the journalist duo, the mixture of information and entertainment and the legendary final dialogue “Still questions, Kienzle?” - “Yes, Hauser.” Above all, the magazine lived from the arguments and differences of opinion between the two Moderators who said they were not played.

When Kienzle retired in 2000, the show was discontinued after 290 episodes. In the same year Bodo Hauser became the ZDF program manager for the news and documentary broadcaster Phoenix , for which he also moderated the talk show Unter den Linden . He directed the show Nachtduell on ZDF .

Hauser was married and had two children. On July 22, 2004, he died unexpectedly at the age of 58 due to an internal bleeding that was detected too late after an intestinal operation. A pulmonary embolism as the cause of death could be ruled out after an autopsy. An expert commission at the North Rhine Medical Association concluded that there was a medical malpractice. However, criminal proceedings against the surgeon were later discontinued for lack of sufficient suspicion. Bodo H. Hauser was buried in the main cemetery of his birthplace in Krefeld .
