Thanks for those taking the time to post comments, really appreciate it.
Here is an update. Firstly, don't know what happened re: safe areas, they were designed with them in mind but something obviously got misaligned along the way. Everything should now be 16:9 safe (except where I've deliberately left stuff out...the logo, the stocks, the #hashtag).
Made the clock and date slightly bigger, and sorted out any alignment issues.
RE: A big breaking news story, I think this is when the side bar comes into it's own. A ticker can only show one piece of information at a time, in WORDS only. A side bar can do much more. So using the recent death of Terry Wogan, I've illustrated what it could look like.
Finally, someone asked about a split screen view. Played around with a few designs, could have the two 'boxes' stacked one on each other, but the best way I thought would be to remove some of the 'filler' stuff in the lower third of the side bar and replace that with the studio view, using the main screen for the reporter etc.
