Granada North West Today
Whilst I'm a big supporter of Lucy Meacock and was very pleased to see her on ITV News, I think Andrea Benfield is a very competant presenter. It's a pity they can't use both - I much prefer them to the likes of Nina Hossain and Romilly Weeks.

I have to agree with Brekkie re: Tony Morris. He's tolerable on Granada Reports but is definitely not national news material. I think ITV quickly realised that - iirc, he only got one shot at ITN about 4 years ago and has never been back.

If in need of a sudden stand-in, why doesn't Alastair Stewart just put his daughter in front of the cameras for News at Ten, should Julie have the flu' or something?

It seems to be acceptable in some countries.

Or else, we could ask Tony Blair if son Euan could stand in reading the news?


TBH That sort of thing happens Gabby Logan , Kelly Cates both got jobs because one of there family is known as did Rebeca Lowe if they have earned it through there own hard work then good on them.

Im not sure if this is the right thread, however, will Beck Mantin be getting a permanent cover for her maternity leave. Possibilities include:
Jo Blythe (covered in 2006/7/Cool,
Phillipa Thompson (appeared on GMTV),
Manali Lukha (appeared around 2 weeks ago) or
Alex Beresford (occasional relief)
Very Happy

I reckon they will probably go with Alex or just use Sian and Martyn and also it is the right thread because I don't think we need a Itv Weather presenters and rotas thread.

Is Debi Edward not ITV News Scotland correspondent - not a weather presenter.
