UTV Newsline
Old sting still being used, non-Reith weather graphic elements still remain, titles of reports/stories on the screen behind the presenters are not Reithed either. Maybe they'll get the hang of it one day.

UTV Newsline
Well last night's 6:30pm bulletin used the correct sting finally. The weather graphics still have any map text and sunrise/sunset astons in Helvetica but the odd one appears in Reith. How they can mix the two is rather odd.

I remember as a young boy watching Seamus McKee on what was called Inside Ulster at 5.35pm on BBC One NI when I visited by grandparents back home in Derry.

Conor Bradford used to host too, a man with the poshest accent to be heard on BBC NI. I think he is still heard on BBC Radio Ulster right?

I once sat in the gallery watching Seamus McKee presenting the lunchtime Inside Ulster during my Sixth Form work experience at BBC NI. All I remember was him “threatening” to sing the headlines.

I managed to get to meet Paul Clark from UTV - it was fantastic to see him at work, and Paul is another presenter who I hope does not retire too soon from UTV.


Paul was fantastic when I visited Havelock House, it must have been in 1993 when I was very young, 8 years old. The reason I was there was that my father was a security guard working for a project with UTV at the time, and Paul said to my father to bring me along to the studio, and I saw the studios including the Kelly Show set.

More Radio Ulster than BBC Newsline but 4 long-serving presenters are stepping down:

They have, however, all presented BBC Newsline and/or its predecessors.

It’ll be a shame in particular to lose Noel Thompson and Seamus McKee but they’ve been there a long time.

Noel Thompson also presented HARDtalk in 2006

He also presented Hearts and Minds till its axing in 2012
