Mr Tumble must have been busy.

That's harsh. Krish Guru-Murthy, Julie Etchingham and Chris Rogers have all transitioned from Newsround to mainstream news.

What I've seen of Ricky (admittedly not much) gives me nothing to believe he wouldn't be able to tailor his delivery style to a mainstream audience.


It's worth adding Matthew Price, Lizo Mzimba and Adam Fleming to the roster of Newsround presenters who have gone on to mainstream reporting (in Matthew Price's case, occasional News Channel presenting) and Jake Humphrey who went on to sports presenting.

I swear only JK Rowling and Daniel Ratcliffe made more money than Lizo Mzimba out of Harry Potter - he basically built a career out of it. Juliet Morris also jumped from Newsround to Breakfast News in the late nineties - a time when flippant comments were taken far less seriously. Smile
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Off-topic, but relevant to the convo, Matthew Price and Kate Sanderson on Sept 12th 2001's edition of Newsround.

Did they get to air at all on the 11th - I assume CBBC moved to BBC2.


Yeah, BillyH's (very interesting) clips jumble from 9/11 has a clip of BBC One showing a huge blue bar "CBBC ON BBC TWO NOW".
We now return you to the testcard and some music.
