From watching ITV News programmes lately, it's gone very downhill in terms of content and presenting,
Mary just doesn't work as well on her own, Tom on NaT does however, as does Julie. Al and Nina are underused at the mo, maybe they might do a couple NAT's during the summer again, I'm sick of the sight of Charlene White & Kylie Pentelow, Steve Scott is another one of those who are underused as a presenter, however there are chances we might see Geraint given a go on the weekends at some point, as he in now based in London.
They now use the summary version of the soundtrack to end the programmes too.
What a strange post. With the recent changes to single headed presentation we see even less of Charlene White and Kylie Pentelow than before, so I don't know how you're managing to be sick of the sight of them! For me Geraint Vincent looked like a rabbit caught in the headlights during his newscasting days so I'd rather not see him present again... all personal preference I suppose.
With regards to Mary going solo - I have to say it's really working a treat for me and the Evening News does feel very much Mary's, in the same way News at Ten is Tom Bradby's bulletin.
