I totally disagree, Inmogoth. I feel Carrie is much better suited to specialist reporting and also with rolling news. As you correctly point out, her slot alongside Simon McCoy is excellent, with precisely the right balance of credibility and humour.
I feel she would be wasted on the Breakfast programme, which would rarely provide a conduit for outing her specialty.
I have enjoyed her doing the live anchoring on BBC World yesterday from China.
I totally agree. I think Carrie, with her background, gives a useful insight into China-related news stories.
As far as rolling news is concerned - as is often mentioned, she works very well alongside Simon McCoy. I also remember her excellent handling of the Beslan siege in 2004, which broke while she was on air with Phil Hayton.
