As well as the new briefing room, I think it’s the first time Shaun Ley has presented a Coronavirus News Special

He presented 16:00-16:30 once before Reeta took over for BBC One

So it was his first time then.

And he looked so happy to be doing so, the very first link when he welcomes viewers & introduces himself he's bouncing in his chair like he's so happy to be on BBC1 Prime Time!

I think Shaun could be the new Simon. Not expecting him to replicate all the on-air lols and hi-jinx, but he has a warmth and informality about him in the best traditions of the BBC. (And appears to be somewhat ego-less which is a rarity in the world of TV news, where reporters and presenters now post incessant pictures of themselves on Insta. I think we know huw- sorry who- I’m talking about).

Shaun Ley is excellent but why does he need to be the new Simon? Why can't he just be Shaun lol?

He could be Shaun Lol, but Shaun Ley is a more appropriate name for a newsreader.

Oh come one peeps! Let's not sully this thread 24+ hours to go. Is Shaun happy? #$%^$&#& He's done network bulletins for a while.

'The new simon' - I'm with Media Boy - I will not miss this kind of rubbish. McCoy never did that slot. THERE IS NO NEW SIMON.

Is there a countdown clock to the end of TVF?

By the ‘new Simon’ I mean he could potentially fill the Afternoon Live slot. I won’t miss the very literal way some people’s brains are wired.

What a strange discussion to end on!

So a very capable newsreader presented a bbc news programme... I try not to get hung up on the minute detail like that- otherwise I’d be in a state of flux like “my goodness I don’t think I’ve seen Huw Edwards talking on tv before 9am since... or shock revelation Martine Croxall appeared on bbc two at 11pm but I’ve only seen her on news channel
At this time of day before...”
