What's wrong with that?

Nothing, if she's presenting a daytime topical chat show or even her own regular programme. But it doesn't comply with News Channel standards.


But all very trivial In the current grand scheme of things.


Just sounded a bit out of place, odd. I mean, it's as if we're all going to start tweeting her how we're all doing. Very Happy

Into week 2 of this revised output, NC and BBC World appear to be simulcasting the first 30 mins and utilising a mix of presenters. Geeta taken over from VD at 11am.

Yes, very picky.

In the circumstances its a perfectly fine thing to say. Probably nice and reassuring for a lot of viewers at home who are anxious and worried, it brings a bit of human niceness into the news.

It's a very radio thing to do, but that's why radio is such a companion to many

I think we've already seen many news and topical programmes end with the message "stay safe", so I don't think this is out of place at all.

Victoria Derbyshire opened the 9am bulletin with 'Hello, good morning, HOW ARE YOU. The headlines.... Shocked


Won’t somebody please think of the children?!!

It’s a bit informal but I think there are far bigger issues.


Derbyshire still can't change her radio delivery style, but I agree in the grander scale of things that it isn't a major issue currently.

I think she's been brilliant on the News Channel in E. She's warm, friendly and authoritative plus connects with the audience (real people, not those of us who frequent forums like this Wink ). Not everyone can like everyone's style, but on a 24-hour channel there's always going to be room for different styles (life would be v dull otherwise).

Perhaps this is where were going to end up when this pandemic has blown over and the next round of cuts kick in i.e Victoria in E 9:00-11:00 In a rolling news format before Newsroom Live takes over as normal.

Seems most likely, shame Annita McVeigh will lose her slot though


Of course she won't, she'll just appear less. Victoria Derbyshire won't displace someone like Annita or anyone else. We're only on week 2 of the revised programming.
