As well as Gillian NSE also had Gargy Patel, Shulie Gosh and Nina Hossian

Have to admit that I like Charlene on any bulletin. She comes across well.

She adapted really well to Loose Women, too.

ITV is advertising for someone 'to work alongside Lucy'.

''We’re looking for a Main Presenter to work alongside Lucy Meacock on our 6pm news programme, Granada Reports and our lunchtime and late bulletins. As one half of our presenting partnership, you’ll not only be the main face of our news service on TV but you’ll come to us with a high profile on social media.''

"As a programme we recognise that the North West is culturally diverse and we are looking to be more inclusive and representative of our audience so we’re looking for a person who can make a really strong contribution to that agenda. You’ll have an appetite to engage with our viewers and build our digital audience"


Without sounding insensitive does anybody know if they found a new presenter?

I’m being careful how I word this as a mark of respect for Tony.

I don't think it's an insensitive question considering the ad was posted a while ago. No announcement so far - you'd have thought January would be a likely start date so an announcement may not be far off, although possible they may hold back a bit in the hope having to socially distance a presenting partnership will be a thing of the past in a few months time.

P.S. This sort of situation is where it is a shame regions don't get their own programming slot anymore as it would be appropriate to have a programme reflecting on Tony Morris as we near the end of the year.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

Thank You and I agree it is a shame there could be no special programme over the coming weeks.

Has there been any word on NWT going down to one presenter yet? Maybe Roger or Annabel are on their way across. Seems the most likely outcome.

That sounds like they only want a person from a diverse background.
Im assuming theve pur it out like that because another Granadw presenter/reporter didn't want to take the job.


Which for ITV means someone of a diverse background - but who went to a private school.

Nothing announced yet. Although Roger seems to be on a lot more. They have an odd situation when one does the lunchtime then the other pops up for the main edition. I presume they are both having an influence in the production of the programme.
