ITV News are looking for a deputy political editor. Is anyone doing this role at the moment?

The obvious candidates all seem to be labelled as "Political Correspondent". Chris Ship is the last person I can see in that role, but hasn't been since 2017.

I know Paul Brand has only just been promoted to UK Editor but I think he should go for this role.

Chris Ship was really good in that role. He could explain things extremely clearly but without dumbing down.

Wonder if the signal might work tonight for Chris ship lol

Carl Dinnen would be good for this. He's another one that explains things clearly without dumbing it down.

That would be a demotion though.

I suspect his promotion though is what is creating the role as although it doesn't seem to have been his title he has arguably been the number two to Peston over the last couple of years. Looks like ITV have decided to reinstate the position now another opening in the political team has opened up, and I suspect it's likely to be filled from within the team.

When Peston eventually moves on, I hope Paul Brand becomes Political Editor as he's really proven himself in the last year or so.

Richard Pallot described by Nina Hossain on the lunchtime news as ā€˜Business Correspondentā€™ ..first time asfik heā€™s been described in this role?
Update: Mary Nightingale did not describe as such, whilst introducing his VT on the Evening News, though.

Yes! Bradby has improved, but I still find Julie editions much more watchable. She is great.
