Apparenly Owain used to present the S4C equivalent of Newsround and has done the occasional Wales Today, so I can't imagine there was any fear of a car crash. I guess an advantage of using journalists with a bit of weather training to do the weather is that they can multitask when cover is required.

I see Paul didn't get the memo on how to pronounce Owain's name though!

Such a comparison to a decade ago when the programme was the flagship. Bring back the Ackroyd I say!


They do seem much more relaxed on who presents the main programme.

I remember we commented when someone like Amanda Harper presented the main show for the first time despite having presented other bulletins for years. Now every presenter does the main programme (except Clare)

The B team covering during half term is nothing new, of course. I don't think there was anything wrong with Owain's presenting - as I observed last week, he has more experience of news presenting than you might expect.

With five weather presenters (now that Lisa has returned - was Owain originally brought in as her maternity cover?) to cover 12 or so shifts through the week I guess that frees Keeley and Owain up for news presenting and Paul to do the radio Weather show.
