Huw Edwards has posted on Instagram that he won't be on screen for a while. With Huw, George and Simon all unavailable for the foreseeable and Fiona's appearances on the news being limited it looks like Sophie, Reeta, Ben, Jane and Clive will be rather busy for the next few weeks (especially if the pattern of 3 BBC one presenters a day continues.

Occasional BBC One presenters will be used more often, e.g. Mishal Husain and Tina Daheley. Opportunity for presenters like Joanna Gosling.

Mishal will be needed on Today so is unlikely to be doing any more than Sundays and Joanna is also currently in self isolation according to her social media. I haven't been paying attention to radio 2 or womens hour so I'm not sure how many of Tina's usual commitments are ongoing.

For once I think the BBC has done a good job with using staff effectively the last week or two. Predominantly Sophie on Six/Ten with the One presenter staying on until 15:45 on the News Channel. With Easter coming up as well, as much as I doubt it being treated any differently in the schedule, I do wonder who we will be seeing.

Someone I've never seen doing a sports opt in the headlines of the six.
Good to see that something as minor as a pandemic or there being no sport isn't preventing the BBC hiring their 6,000,000th sports presenter...

Well done for needlessly bashing the BBC and assuming that a presenter was just hired because you haven't seen them before.

Could be a bit of continuity planning - keep some members of the senior team completely away from work so they can hopefully step in at a later date and relieve the current team.
Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.

Anyone?

I know the BBC has put out a call for freelancers recently , so expect to see more of them on our screens as various people are off sick, self-isolating, or just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Where? My friend is a freelance presenter that usually does bits for The Nine, but hasn't heard about this?
