Central (East) East Midlands Today
I'm surprised that many of the BBC Regional News programmes still have two presenters. This feels like a saving that is inevitable.


Think they will all be single headed eventually. I think East Midlands is still double headed because Anne and Dom have been the lead duo for so long now (20 years this year). When one retired, or personally I think they might retire together, I think it will become a solo job

Noooo... They can't split up Stewart and Susie! They are approaching their silver anniversary!

It is far more common for one to present without the other now for the odd day or two rather than always rota someone else instead. I wonder if has been suggested with East Midlands that it might go single headed when Stewart retires.

STV Central BBC World News
With Newsnight kicked out of the studio again tonight and Victoria Derbyshire being axed could they actually close Studio B if needs really must?


• BBC World News on Friday
• Impact
• Live with Lucy Hockings
• Talking Business with Aaron Heslehurst
• Global with Matthew Amroliwala
• Focus on Africa
• Newsnight

Most of the above are mostly daily shows with multiple editions (and probably something else I’ve forgotten) and all come out of Studio B, many at times when other studios are in use. So, it would be difficult to close B, I think.

Equally meaningless.


The one from the official BBC News presentation is hardly meaningless. If you work in the organisation (the audience it's intended for) it has a lot of meaning. It's a clear way of explaining the new organisational arrangements for News commissioning, acquisition, production and delivery.

No it's not - it's a graphic used to hide that 450 of them won't be working for BBC News much longer.
