Regarding Leigh it’s nice they’re starting to use reporters to present more... just a shame they can’t get on to the main programme! I get the impression they hold their talent back and don’t give them opportunities.


Leigh has done her fair share of cover for network and also on BBC London, so I don't think the BBC in Norwich are holding back talent.

In fact Look East seems to be a very good springboard for people. Many have joined Look East and then taken roles with BBC World News and Sky.

Yes, Vanessa Baffoe is the latest from Norwich to go to Sky and I have no doubt Leigh will go national on a permanent basis too. She has an accessible delivery which goes across the age ranges.

No Stewart White on BBC Look East this evening either... do we think this is him now stepping back for 12 weeks?

It is no longer unusual for Stewart or Susie to present alone. Sometimes it will be for a few days.

Although based on the fact that neither Harry Gration or Nick Owen appear to be voluntarily off air it is likely that Stewart has also been told to not go to work.

That’s what I was thinking; with Harry Gration tweeting he’d been told to stay at home assumed Stewart would be in the same situation.

Albeit both Stewart/Susie regularly present alone it would have been nice for them to have explained his absence on air this evening... if he’s potentially now off screen for 10-12 weeks!
