About Kai Diekmann

Kai Diekmann, born in 1964, interviewed Helmut Kohl as a high school student in Bielefeld in 1982 for the conservative school newspaper he founded. While performing his military service, he succeeded in breaking into journalism with an internship at Axel Springer Verlag. From 1998 to 2000, Diekmann was Editor in Chief of WELT am SONNTAG, and subsequently held the top role at the German tabloid BILD from January 2001 to January 2017. Many events that moved Germany took place during this period: the scandal surrounding Christian Wulff, Putin's invasion of Crimea, Angela Merkel and the refugee drama, the death of former Chancellor Kohl. Kai Diekmann himself became a target of extremists. He is one of the co-founders of the social media agency Storymachine and lives with his family in Potsdam.
