Does Gavin Grey speak with an RP accent?
When I listen to him, he just sounds to me like one of those BBC presenters from decades ago. Not that many World presenters use that accent anymore I think.
Yes, he does
Good to know. It's pretty hard to hear an RP-speaking presenter on World today, I'm not sure about News. It seems to me that RP is sort of like something left in the past.
Ali Moore presenting the Singapore section of Newsday. I have seen her before on the BBC but not sure whether this is her first time presenting?
You've probably seen her on the occasional business cross-overs on WBR. We discussed a little last time. She started during the typhoon Haiyan incident I remember, when Rico & Sheranjit were separately deployed to Philippines, with SG studio shorthanded. Then she was mostly doing ABR, with Newsday telecast live between London and Rico/Sheranjit on-location in Philippines. Then there were a few times later she was on Newsday co-presenting with London as well, in addition to ABR. After Sheranjit & Rico's back, she didn't appear very often anymore, only occasionally.
