Do we think Victoria may retain this slot considering her programme was axed? Seems plausible considering the BBC said it was still very much invested in Victoria herself.
I would take a guess and say yes, and she is surprisingly alright at it. It’s not just a generic hour either, plenty more interviews with quite senior figures and she does almost make it seem like a visual radio show.
Adding to the chorus of agreement here - yes after all the fuss about it being axed, it turns out Victoria is far better suited to this format they have been running during the pandemic than the ridiculously over-produced stuff they did on the VD show. Has shown why she was rated so highly to make the move from 5 live to TV to start with. 9am has become a very watchable hour on BBC One, they should make this a permanent move.
Do you think her and Annita's current slot could return as "BBC News at Nine" post-pandemic?
