Well it dosent but again shows the bbc shouldn’t be naming shows with peoples name as more often then not they won’t be presenting it, they might as well rename it to Impact with Philippa Thomas who has been a regular presenter.

Shows nothing of the sort, don't be so melodramatic.

This sort of thing happens in America all the time. "The evening news with Fred Flintstone, hello I'm Barney Rubble, Fred's off tonight".

Your last five posts have been nothing but moans. Have you nothing nice to say?

Philippa's programme was World News Today, but I don't know if she temporarily left in 2017 and then Yalda's leave too. Then Alpa took over, but she has been away for 18 months too

Ben Thompson back in London for a bit; Victoria Fritz, meanwhile, is in Salford. Sally Bundock is in Davos; Ben Bland filling-in for Sally on The Briefing all week.

It's been fun watching Ben Thompson on Afternoon Live with Simon. Mind you, it's always fun watching Simon whoever the business presenter is he gets to have chemistry with. Sad to think that Simon will be 60 in a couple of years so can't be far off retirement.


What an utterly ageist idea!

Jon Snow is 72, Alastair Stewart is 67 and John Humphrys is 76...and the list goes on....Oh, and let's not forget David Attenborough and David Dimbleby.

Simon McCoy won't be going anywhere, and if he were to leave - it wouldn't be because he's about to hit 60!

Stewart, Humphrys and Dimbleby probably aren’t the best examples to use, given they’ve all been encouraged out of their (main) roles in the last year...

That's pure speculative and you 'House' are one of them.

Trevor McDonald... retired twice, the latter way beyond 60.

Nicholas Owen is 76! It was far less than 6 years ago he last appeared on the News Channel.

You've no argument, it was a ridiculous and ageist comment to have made in the first instance.
