Yorkshire Look North (E.Yorks & Lincs)
Has everyone noticed that there seems to be a full length regional news and national news tomorrow at 6pm, despite being a bank holiday?


As well as full length national and regional evening bulletins we appear to have our regular presenters also. Normally the regular presenters don't appear on Bank Holidays. But on ITV Wales at least we had our regular lunchtime presenter and one of our regular 6pm presenters. Even the weather was done by our regular weekday presenter, normally Bank Holidays are part of the weekend weather hub.


but not here in the Calendar region, we had B and C list presenters and weather hub weather.


Business as usual for Calendar then?

Anglia (West) Look East


For my region and sterile news look no further than BBC Look East, or Anglia News. Zzzzzz.......


Look East with Stewart and Susie, sterile? They are one of the very best and longest regional duos. Simply superb I feel .


Although it seems like I'm kind of contradicting my original point I absolutely do agree with you here. Although I'm in the Look East (West) region and we don't see so much of them anymore on our half of the region. Stewart with Penny Bustin on Look East was another good match up with him by the way.

I was speaking more in terms of news events locally rather than presenter personalities.

Not sure if it's been mentioned here before, but "Our Cartoon President", a series which has been shown on Sky Atlantic recently (and is currently available on catch up) makes regular use of the ITV News theme music from the 1999-2003 era, including the bongs!

There's also been a few uses of the current ITV News theme music.

Granada North West Today
In Birmingham this evening and Watched ITV Central news at 6. At the end of the programme the female presenter said she was moving to the national evening news for 6 months. Wonder if Mary is off on another project or maybe just trying out different regional hosts?

Stacey Foster will be on reporting duty. It's common for regional reporters to be seconded to ITV News for a few months.

Central (West) Midlands Today
Stacey previously spent time reporting for the national and London bulletins but on that occasion she was rarely presenting the Central evening news. Recently she has presenting the Central evening news more often than not, with Sameena Ali-Khan presenting less often.
