Look North (Yorkshire)
Good to see Samantha Simmonds covering BBC News at Nine this morning.


And is also doing Newsroom Live as well.

Part of the same shift, which also includes reading the heads on Victoria Derbyshire.

News at Nine and Newsroom Live are 2 separate shifts (Annita and Joanna with Carrie covering on Mondays and Fridays respectively) however more often than not it seems to be the same presenter at the minute.

Which is how it will pan out through August-if one person is off (or in Joanna Gosling's case covering Victoria) the other does both The News at Nine and Newsroom Live.

Not to divert too much from the topic but I do find it funny that since the 9am hour was most recently changed, the presenter only does an hour and a bit on air (of course they aren't just there for an hour and will be working off air before and after). I'm not in the industry, so am not passing judgement and people watch TV news for news regardless of presenter - it just got me thinking... on CNN, Isha Sesay said she did a 13hr day, Bloomberg's Shery Ahn is on air 1.30-2, 4.50-5 and 6-9pm. On Franceinfo Fanny Conquy does 11am-7pm solo on weekends... each to their own!
