If ITV plc, which owns 40% of Independent Television News Ltd (ITN), buys the other 60%, it'll probably rename the organisation ITV News Ltd (and yes, I do know that ITV stands for Independent Television).
In that event, would the ITV plc regional news operations outside the London region still be legally separate from ITV News Ltd, e.g. ITV Yorkshire Ltd, ITV Granada Ltd, ITV Meridian Ltd?
Is there suggestion that ITV plc. want to buy the whole of ITN?
ITN has a big name across the world, I assume ITV would probably retain the brand, especially in cases such as C4/C5 where they provide the news.
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...
