Lucrezia Millarini is on now for the ITV Evening News.


Is that the first time Lucrezia has done the evening news? Seen her on lunchtime and weekends before not 6:30. I thought Charlene would have done the evening news and Lucrezia cover London.


Suzanne Virdee presented London


Virdee did a run of London main bulletins over the last few days. Can't say I'm a fan of her delivery.

It’s a fantasy to think the great Al would present at 6am.

He is regularly doing fill in slots on Talk Radio which has miniscule listeners since Nina got the Lunchtime gig. I don't see how GMB which regularly hits close to a 30% share in the 6am slot is beneath him tbh.

Not that I think there is a hope in hell of an ITN branded bulletin airing there.

It is a bit strange and idiotic now that the remains of the old breakfast franchise times have to be maintained in 2019. Good Morning Britain is now fully owned and operated by ITV and not by a separate company like TV-am or GMTV were. Their news has the ITV News logo on it, so it should not be any hard to have an ITV Morning News programme at 6, followed by GMB at 6.30 if they wished - or are they so desperate to keep the relics of the breakfast franchise arrangements forever?

Nothing to do with that, ITV News bulletins air at 8:25 at weekends.

There won’t be an ITN bulletin at 6am, I don’t know why it is still being discussed, it’s well past the line of pure fantasy.

What are the main reasons for not having an ITV branded news at 6.00am? Not ITN, ITV News remember.
