Tanya is freelance and occasionally contributes to BBC Radio. She hasn’t presented BBC World News for quite some time, where she was doing weekend and late night slots infrequently when she stopped being a business presenter.
David Eades and Sally Bundock currently share the morning slot between them, with occasional appearances from Tim Willcox.
Karin Giannone and Samantha Simmonds have been doing weekend mornings lately.
Philippa Thomas is busy with other (non BBC) work at the moment.
Krupa is primarily a BBC World Service radio presenter (along with the likes of James Menendez and Nuala McGovern). Whilst radio is their primary work, they all fill in on BBC World News tv from time to time, Nuala on a more regular basis and across all tv output, and James/Krupa normally on generic BBC World News.
Due to the obvious lack of slot time at the moment, none of them are really needed on World TV but are busy on World Radio.
Snippet: when Outside Source was launched on World TV some years ago, Krupa was the main deputy for Ros Atkins.
Simon Pusey: overnight slots covered adequately at the moment by Mike and Lewis and James R.
Furthermore, Babita Sharma is now back in the system and therefore even less of a requirement for cover in the traditional Newsday slot.
