Have started a new thread to upload the figures for who presented what and how much in the 1990s for Breakfast News, the Six and the Nine. I've separated it for anyone who wants to see the 90s and doesn't want to wade through the 2000s figures to find them.

Breakfast News 1990:

(1) Nicholas Witchell - 165 programmes
(2) Laurie Meyer - 133 programmes
(3) Jill Dando - 107 programmes
(4) Fiona Foster - 23 programmes
(5) Kirsty Wark - 16 programmes
(6) Charlie Lee-Potter - 7 programmes
(7) Chris Lowe - 4 programmes
(8 ) Paul Burden - 3 programmes


I was a big fan of Charlie Lee Potter. Whatever happened to her?

Thanks for doing this so far, Rolling News. I'm going to be most interested in the 1990s stats. I remember all of those people but the benefit of this exercise is it gives a rough snapshot of who was most involved with a programme in a given year. For instance, I do remember Sally Magnusson presenting Breakfast News but I'd never have guessed she topped the leader board in 1994.

I think it might have been on location as George was also billed to do the same bulletins. Matt definitely presented the Six for a week from the studio, in the summer of 2008 and then in 2009.

Yeah I vaguely remember one of these. It was a week Matt presented the Six, while George (I think?) presented the Ten for most of the week, but on the nights in question George presented on location, with Matt staying on in the studio
