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.
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.
I think you’ve hit the nail on the head here.
There must be some team system in place. With so much uncertainty and with senior figures falling unwell, it makes total sense to keep a cluster of senior presenters off air and safe until absolutely needed.
We’ve not seen Jane Hill on air so much since she returned to work which is great.
I only want to be the person I am.
