Indeed, that's what I thought. But there were quite a few instances in 2019 when Huw would present the Ten from Westminster in the run up to (the original and actual) Brexit and the General Election, and Clive would babysit the studio at the same time as covering the late shift on the News Channel. Also Clive presented more on location throughout the year too.

2020 so far tells a different story. Sophie is currently way in the lead above Clive and not that far behind Huw.


2019 was basically the Huw in Westminster and Clive in the studio show. At this point, I believe, Huw was still (mostly) doing four days.

I just did a quick count for Six and Ten this year, and the result shows that Sophie is the most prominent presenter for the 6/10. Huw’s in second, George in third.

To be fair, I remember at the start of the lockdown Sophie was basically present all the time, every time when George was off and Huw was ill. She deserves it to be fair after years of just being slapped on whatever is free.

This is the current tally for 2020 for each individual programme up to the end of June:

Hopefully over this weekend I’ll be posting some new items into this topic... still a decade or so of newsreaders to share, plus I’ll might look at weekends or like rolling news did, who did the “unusual scheduled bulletins” - the Christmas and bank holidays etc.

Will look forward to it.

I was planning to do weekends/bank holidays/Christmas & New Year period for the 2010s but thought it might get a bit confusing.

Once you’ve finished with the Six/Ten figures, will you be doing weekend figures?
Thanks.

Possibly....or possibly not. Haven't really decided yet, just mainly want to concentrate on 'main' bulletins.

Please do! It would be v interesting.

I remember when the poor person who worked Christmas Day on BBC One had to do the lunchtime, evening and late. Of course last year the lunchtime was done by the on-duty NC presenter (Carrie Gracie, I think), there was no evening shift and the late was with Clive.
