Any channel that would go down the Franceinfo route would be fantastic, but it may be too French for an Anglophone channel.
Well, television presentation evolves over the years.
Its funny how a number of presentation changes I kept suggesting/harking on about on here in circa 2008/2010 regarding BBC News (and were continually shot down when even raised) were eventually implemented on the BBC News channel from 2013 onwards. And you know what, they've improved the feel of the channel for the better. A mix of standing and desk based presentation, use of VR and touchscreens etc.
My fondest memory was Newswatch picking up a tweet I wrote in 2009 suggesting the News channel presenters should stand at the top of the hour to bring the channel in line with the national bulletins. It was laughed off by people on here (and one or two who post on here from the Beeb). Fast forward to 2014/2015 and the solo standing TOTH
presentation appeared on the News channel and an insider on here said something along the lines of it being done to compliment the nationals!
Maybe I was just ahead of the times? But i'll say again what i've said on here since I joined the forum, news channels must always innovate and look to bring along younger viewers who will be loyal to the channels for years to come. Finding new ways of showcasing great journalism and content is key in any broadcast medium, as i've found in radio (particularly production) myself. Especially when you're competing with the internet and social media.
