Emma Murphy now taken up the role of US Correspondent. Robert Moore staying on as a correspondent based in the US
I was saying a couple of months ago he must be one of the longest serving correspondents in the same role - think it's about 20 years. I guess both will stay to cover the election, and then Robert move on to whatever he is doing next.
That main role belongs to Julie Etchingham, end of story. She does Breaking News better than anyone on any channel in my opinion, and NAT with her eyes closed. Nina and Mary also wipe the floor with open ended coverage. In fact I can't recall a time Tom's been rushed on with Breaking News. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
News at Ten isn't about breaking news though, it's about reporting and analysis. Tom has been an excellent appointment in relation to how dominant politics has been in recent years, even if it did very much upset the applecart and lead to some major casualities. I absolutely agree Julie Etchingham is the best newsreader ITV have got, but I think Tom has proven himself.
Personally I wish considering ITV News airs most Sundays at 10pm they added a full Sunday edition as well (especially as when Peston aired at 10.15 it did quite well) and then had a more equal Buerk/Sissons style split of the bulletins with them both doing three most weeks.

Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.
