Split from BBC News: Presenters & Rotas

I think Tim Willcox has shown himself to be excellent at doing The Papers recently. Would love to see him take up the evening slot on the NC permanently after all this is over

I doubt the evening shift will get a fixed presenter again (as it’s very rare now for Clive to do it) and once this is all over, whenever that will be, it’ll just be back to a different presenter every night as it was before.


Without wishing to get into rota territory it does feel noticable that the evening shift hasn’t had a frequent presenter for a while (it’s Clive’s slot in the same way Sophie’s bulletin is the 1 O’Clock news - both these mainly do other shifts and it’s more of a surprise when they appear in their official role) when there does seem to be a surplus of morning presenters. Victoria, Annita, Joanna and Carrie seem to all regularly do the morning slot so surely move one so there’s at least a fairly frequent evening presenter - of course maybe none of them want the evening slot.

To be fair it can’t be a very enticing shift - it’s a shift that lasts 5.5 hours but the presenter is only on air for 2.5 hours.
Stay alert. Control the virus. Save lives.

We should just expect the unexpected when it comes to BBC News. There are plenty of examples of when we’ve been surprised, but this is something new.

We don’t know when or even if we are going back to the old schedule. There will be no VD, which is a major change to the morning schedule in itself. We don’t know if the nine o’clock hour is going to stay on BBC One. We don’t know whether the evening shift will return. We don’t know if the one will continue to remain in a three hour news channel shift.

The current schedule and rota works well for the BBC in the way that it is very cost effective and well, easier. Obviously, there will be punches thrown on this forum some things don’t return or go, but we are just going to have to wait. I, at least, have a slight feeling some things won’t go back.

The 7pm & 9pm were already produced by BBC World News pre-covid, I imagine that will stay. So couldn't Christian's shift include the 8pm hour as well from C, with Ros on World at 8pm then OS at 9pm, with the ten doing the papers at 10:40 11pm half-hour before world presenter does second papers. On Friday, Nancy would do WNT at 7pm & 9pm, with the 8 pm & 11 pm bulletins presented by another presenter

Nancy hardly presents that shift, another one like Clive and Sophie

Between September and beginning of lockdown her regularly shift on world was 7pm-10pm (Simulcast at 7pm BBC Four & 9pm) on Friday & 7pm-1am (Simulcast at 9pm & 12am) Saturday, but because of Covid-19 others have been. When she wasn't on assignment

Nancy's regular shift is the Africa focused business programme (I can't remember what they're calling it this month) and relief on FoA. Any work she does on news is on top of her main job. Friday evenings haven't had a regular presenter for the past year (as Kasia has been covering for Babita), Saturdays are Lewis Vaughan Jones and Sundays Karin G.

Kasia has not done that Friday shift for many months (Since September I think) before Covid as Babita was on maternity leave, yes. Lewis was only filling intially for Alpa, but with Kasia not doing Friday and Alpa not returning to World Nancy took both shifts with Karin/Lewis doing two in four Sunday's. Nancy was the summer presenter Mon-Thu when Beyond 100 Days took the summer break. Nancy was doing FOA on Mondays & WNT Fri–Sat prior to March

I said Friday's hadn't had a regular presenter for the past year, but it is likely that if things were currently on the normal schedule Kasia would have returned to Friday evenings now that Babita is back. Looking BBC News Fix it would appear that Nancy did a total of 5 Fridays and 5 Saturdays between this time last year and the start of the current simplified schedule in mid march. This is the same number of Fridays as all of Samantha Simmonds, Lewis Vaughan Jones and Maryam Moshiri and the 15 other Fridays (where normal programming was shown and therefore excluding Brexit night as well as a couple of other occasions where it appears no studio presenter appeared in the slot) were shared between another 10 presenters so I think it is pretty fair to say that Friday's haven't had a regular presenter in that period. On Saturday's Nancy's 5 shifts compares to LVJ's 16 and 15 done by another 9 presenters (including 4 each by Samantha and Simon Pusey). For completeness Nancy hasn't done a single Sunday in that time with Karin presenting the most (12 times), Lewis next (7) and a total of 9 others appearing in that slot.

Susannah Streeter left BBC News yesterday. Her Twitter has a nice throwback to all the BBC roles she’s undertaken over the many years at the Corporation. On tv and radio. I *did* wonder why her Twitter handle had changed recently. Now we know.....

Not sure if that indicates Sussanah is going to be freelance reporting or appearing as an analyst, or is perhaps going into PR for a firm?

I'm guessing she's moving to The City as an analyst. But could still contribute DTL.
