The New ITV & BBC Weather Thread

It wasn’t sponsored yesterday either, there were no stings, it just came on and then finished and went off. I’d assumed it was to give the forecast a bit more time.

The ITV Anglia regional weather was the same and had no sponsorship ident, despite it just beginning its new sponsorship deal with Greater Anglia train company. I presumed this was to give the forecasts more time, also, but with all the troubles it’s having with travel cancellations at moment, who knows?

ITV News

Geraint Vincent back in London as general reporter and has changed his itvnews Twitter profile to be just described as 'correspondent' and no longer 'Middle East correspondent.' Does anybody know if he has stepped down, been moved, or is being replaced in this role?

TV News silly season

Clearly 'silly season' or Christmas, as its more commonly known, has come early this year at ITV news! Health editor Rachel younger is currently in Washington, obviously covering for Robert Moore and Penny Marshall, social affairs editor, reporting on a political non-story of the by-election. Now I understand reporters/ correspondants have leave/ holiday.etc and also have families/ lives outside of their job roles and are not chained to their onscreen specialism, but is it really professional or appropriate and the best use of their talents, experience and job roles, using such people for what amounts to holiday cover? This would never (hardly ever) happen on the bbc but ITN/ ITV, on much lesser resources and funds, are repeat offenders of this. This is such a pet hate (can't be the only one, given by ratings) of mine and really undermines much needed and much worked for, I might add and congratulate on, credibility needed for its onscreen talent and by non-regular viewers of their bulletins and adds to the whole sorry saga with the new news at ten and its demotion and promotion to anchor of its programmes as a whole.

ITV News

Anyone know where Romilly Weeks and Lewis Vaughan Jones are? Haven't seen them on any ITV news programmes, including weekend bulletins.Etc, at all for many months and since Paul Brand was added to the roster of national political correspondents.

NEWS at TEN - January 2016 Relaunch

News story sources are not his 'contacts'! It makes them sound like his Westminster chums!! These people are fighting a war against Islamic extremism, barbaric groups and even their own governing bodies! ITV's News at Ten should be presented, in my opinion (others may think otherwise), by an experienced and well respected newscaster, like Julie Etchingham or Mark Austin not a critic of a news story, like Tom Bradby.

NEWS at TEN - January 2016 Relaunch

Tom Bradby just introduced headline story, on News at Ten, with a line about his 'contacts' in the city of Aleppo, Syria. Is it really appropriate to refer to Syria's many victims in such a manner and can someone please explain why this inane man is still allowed to present ITN's and ITV's flagship nightly news programme, with all its history and precedence?
