And, as mentioned in the BBC south thread, Roger Finn is leaving BBC South too.



He was in the studio at the end of the 6.30 bulletin tonight. They showed old clips and bid him farewell.

Dominic Heale from East Midlands Today is leaving:






Previously on TSW News and Central News East, Dominic Heale replaced Nick Thatcher on EMT 20 years ago.


Yep, here's a clip of him from his days at TSW, being the newsreader on TSW Today.

Doesn't he look young there.


I did wonder who would remain. I thought he might stay over Anne. More sad news!

Sad to see. I'd always thought the two of them would bow out together.

I know they've said Anne is staying on as lead anchor, but will this mean more screen time for the likes of Sarah Teale and Navtej Johal?

Probably, I like Navtej’s presenting style he was good on East Midlands tonight and when he co presented with Anne on the 6:30 programme during simpler times if you know what I mean. and Sarah’s been doing it for a while now
South Today and JamesLaverty1925 gave kudos

Sarah Teale was a reporter and newsreader on Central News (East) about 15 to 20 years ago. She is very experienced.

Was she made redundant by itv in 2009 and move to bbc?

Same here. He appeared on National a few times as well this year as a reporter when Leicester went into localised lockdown.

No, she left Central News in 2006.

Sarah would have been my first choice if Dominic and Anne both took voluntary redundancy. She's originally from Croydon, but as you say knows that patch off by heart.

It kind of got lost in the South Today thread, so I'll post it here as well. Here's Roger's farewell...

Having watched Harry Gration's penultimate programme (with an appearance from Parky) its clear he doesn't want to go.

It’s going to be emotional tomorrow night.
