Martine's shifts seem to be pretty solid at the moment which is great! I would love to see Lucy Hockings on the NC/Network but it never seems to happen........yet!
Lucy Hockings is exceptional so it's likely World will want to keep her.
I think it's unpredictable when you consider Lyse and Mishal's paths at the BBC. I use to chat to Lyse on AIM after work experience and THEN, not now, accents etc provided issues. Now of course we all know, these issues are all but gone. I am sure, and having had various chats with Lyse that back then (1995+) that she would never have imagined she'd be in the position she's in. She didn't appear on Network News for over a decade after starting with world.
I really hope Lucy lands up on the NC/Network. She is as you say RN - exceptional!
Please excuse any typing errors. I am on my third butterfly keyboard (Mac). An update is due the minute what I want is released.
