Jean-Pierre Pernaut ([ʒɑ̃ pjɛʁ pɛʁno] ; born 8 April 1950 in Amiens, Somme) is a news reader and broadcaster on French television. He is widely known simply by his initials, JPP.

The regular presenter of station TF1's lunchtime news bulletin, the 13 Heures (1pm) since 1988, Pernaut's combination of avuncular personality and authoritative delivery has made him one of France's most popular news readers.

Also editor-in-chief of the bulletin, Pernaut has long promoted a deliberate policy of trivial content in each edition, usually running items about local culture and traditional crafts towards the end of the broadcast.

The approach has won a regular audience of between seven and eight million for the 13 Heures, a considerable figure for a lunchtime news programme.

From 1991 to 2010 he was also the longtime presenter of Combien ça coûte ? (How much does that cost?), a monthly consumer programme, again on TF1. Since 1988 Pernaut has also served on the board of directors of TF1 Group as a representative of the firm's employees.

The partner of former Miss France, Nathalie Marquay, Pernaut published his best-selling memoirs, Pour tout vous dire.... (To tell you everything... ), in 2005. Shortly before that, he published two volumes of Les magnifiques métiers de l'artisanat (Splendid trades of the craft industry), which were glossy, but informative, tomes devoted to the subjects which have made his news bulletins so distinctive.
