A Date with Luyu – Cui Yongyuan 5

 

transcript

 

鲁豫:但你要知道主持人这个事儿,你说我喜欢电视,我有新闻的使命感,但它是跟名利还是有关系的,名利对任何人都有吸引力。我想它对我也是有吸引力的某种程度上。你2002年最终没有离开,名利有没有一丁点儿的吸引力对你来说?

lŭ yù : But you know, being a host still connects to the fame and wealth which is pretty attractive to everyone, although you believe that you like the TV industry and have the sense of mission for reporting the news. And it is also attractive to me to some extent. But you didn’t leave in 2002, so isn’t there any attraction to you at all?

 

崔永元:我认为应该没有。

cuī yŏng yuán :I don’t think so.

 

鲁豫:完全没有?

lŭ yù : Not at all?

 

崔永元:嗯。我觉得是这样,当我2013年离开的时候,我还严守中央台的纪律呢。就是我没接过什么商业广告,基本上没参加过商业活动,可能偶尔的有那么一两件事儿,界定不清是不是商业活动。我是非常守规矩的。

cuī yŏng yuán :No. I believe not. I still followed the discipline strictly when I left the CCTV. That’s why I didn’t take any commercial advertisement or hardly took part in any commercial activities. Maybe one or two occasionally, but it was hard to distinguish whether it was a commercial activity or not. I always kept the rules.

 

鲁豫:只靠工资来生活?

lŭ yù : All depends on your salary?

 

崔永元:那不会的,我还出书呢!

cuī yŏng yuán :Not really, and I had a book published.

 

鲁豫:你出书你就出了一本那个。。。

lŭ yù :You just had only one book.

 

崔永元:我一本就卖了上百万呢!我还可以帮人做策划,做幕后的,我能做很多事情呢!不会只靠工资,但是我觉得非常体面了,我已经觉得非常非常好了。比我的哥哥比我的姐姐过得都还好。但是如果你随便拉一个主持人来跟我比,我的生活就是很惨的,就是这样。

cuī yŏng yuán :It sold millions of copies. I can also help to make strategic planning, do the behind-the-scenes work and so on. It is very decent for me to do all these and I am in a very satisfying condition considering not just depends on my salary. I am even better than my brother and sister. But if you compare me to some random host, maybe my life seems miserable. That’s it.

 

鲁豫:所以名利对你没有。。没有你考虑的余地。

lŭ yù : So there is no room for your consideration of fame and wealth.

 

崔永元:你看现在我离开了以后,我就觉得挣钱这么容易,但是你让我重新选,我还会一直到离开之前,不干这些事情,肯定的。

cuī yŏng yuán :Now I feel it easier to make money after I left the TV industry. But, if you ask me to reselect, I still choose not to do those thing before I go for sure.
