Is there a shortage of Newsreaders for the main BBC1 bulletins, for the past month Sophie Raworth has done most 6pm and 10pm bulletins.
Well there’s plenty of newsreaders they can use from News Channel, Breakfast, etc. Maybe Victoria Derbyshire might do a bulletin now and then or shall I duck now to avoid any hypothetical missiles that may come my way?
Agreed. Why on earth they don't use Simon McCoy on the 6 and 10 is beyond me. He frequently does the 1, surely it makes sense to get cover for his NC show and use him on the nationals.
From what Jane Hill said when she returned, it's unlikely she'll be racing to do longer shifts. What about Kate Silverton? She's rarely seen at all other than her Saturday shift.
Joanna Golsing and Martin Croxall would be ideal substitutes too.
