Who is the fixed presenters for each slots , I have been looking back but I can't seem to see anything


At the moment the confirmed slots seem to be (mainly):

8:30-11 Simon McCoy & Carrie Gracie (Mon: Sophie Long)
11-2 Ben Brown & Joanna Gosling (can't say for certain though)
2-5 Matthew Amroliwala & Jane Hill
6:30-9 Annita McVeigh
9-10, 10:30-1am Clive Myrie (Mon-Thu) Martine Croxall (Fri)

Annita McVeigh on the News Channel from 6.30pm.

First time I've seen Annita stood up in my life.


Only times I've ever seen her standing up is when handing over to the BBC1 presenter on the late weekend shifts. Also many moons ago when she first started on News 24 she'd stand up occasionally at the TOTH.

It's a shame they ended up keeping Ben Brown on NC! I think he's so wasted as a presenter and should get back into reporting (like Chris Eakin). Good to see Sophie Long being removed from the 2pm shift to in favour of Joanna Gosling! I would have rather seen Julian Worricker or Nicholas Owen promoted alongside Joanna though!

Am I the only one who likes Ben Brown as both a presenter and a reporter? I don't see what people's problem with him is.

I'm with you - I think he's one of the best that the BBC has.

It's good that we have a new Presenter & Rota thread in line with the new look BBC News. Of course, it would have been nice to see the old thread reach 1,000 pages, but I suppose at 615 pages it had a pretty good run. Oh well, let's carry on with what we've achieved and here's to a new era in BBC News rota discussions!
