Breakfast are rather short next week:
Saturday-Sunday: Roger Johnson and Naga Munchetty
Monday-Wednesday: Louise Minchin and Nicholas Owen
Thursday-Friday: Simon McCoy and Louise Minchin.
So Susanna Reid, Bill Turnbull, Charlie Stayt and presumably Jon Kay all on holiday.
It's not unusual, though - about a decade ago they used to drag Michael Peschardt all the way over from Australia to cover Breakfast shifts in August and even Michael Buerk presented it in 2003-ish.
Speaking of past presenters, does anyone else miss the last incarnation of Breakfast News? The usual presenters - Jon Nicholson, Sophie Raworth, Tanya Beckett, Julie Etchingham, Noel Thompson - were all really good and treated viewers like intelligent people. It's a far cry from what the programme has become with all this simpering and pouting all the time. I generally catch about 20 minutes of Breakfast while eating my breakfast at 7.00 am but I listen to Today on Radio 4 in the car which I find to be a much better news programme for my taste.
