Thought i'd use this as a new one as we have too much on the cnwest one.
So ive been looking over central news east and westt and i must say i always have found that west is of a more appropriate style and geths the better presenters Bob. Jo and Llewella(she was good on Central East though)
I noticed Dominic Helae jumped ship! Well hes not much better on East midlands today anyway (Maybe him and Gordon Burns should get together, that'd really deporess the North West!)
MarieAshby's not as perky as she used to be either! I#ve never been Keen on Kevin either, but do miss Anabelle Tiffi (now of NwT and did the best job filling in last summer for Gordon!)
Also where has the lovely Lisa Foden gone? she was the best they had and she seems to have vanished??

Anyway when is Central News moving to Brum? About time it got a new set the current one is looking a bit stale and stuffy.

One last thing those final credits for cne were very funky before we were itvised! Probably the best theyd had for much time.
It is very confuisgn why they are moving the news to bormingham and keeping a news centre though in brum??? Is this really cutting them costs?

AFAIK it's February, as they've sold the land of the Carlton Studios to Nottingham University and the new Newsroom in Nottingham has been opened, so it has to be very soon.

Yes, running 2 studios in the same building is a lot cheaper than 2 studios in 2 buildings.

No kevin and Marie tonight Dan and Lucy are much better i think and i think it is time that they are given a chance to show whether they are good at presenting the c..n@6 programme
So Kevin and Marie must be on holiday.
I must say dan has a habbit of sticking his pen up in the air!
Well good ro see other presenters been give the chance to present we see too much of Kevin and personally i think he is dull as dishwater

true very true blimey just seen Lisa Foden do a light report shes not been seen for ages??
She used to do the lunchtime news and she was very good at it and well she pops up! Anyone else know where she has been?
Maybe shes decided to cut down? Shame she id MOST DEFINALTELY the most friendliest person on central news she always used to welcome us and say good to see you etc.
Wonder if Central News will look back on its past of East Midlands (after all it has been there nearly 13 years)

I reckon they'll never even mention they're coming from Birmingham. I think it would confuse the average viewer if they were to report that they're no longer broadcasting from the East Midlands (even though the news is still gathered from there). I expect they'll give out their postal address (where necessary) as Terry Llyod House in Chilwell and if/when they do a report on the move from Lenton Lane, they'll probably focus the report on the new newsgathering centre rather than their new studio location.

Indeed. I reckon the first Brum 1800 edition will say something like "Welcome to the first Central News from our new home " (or some similarly ambiguous phrase, not "...from Birmingham" ).

There was an item on the move to the new newsgathering facilities and the faqct that tomorrow there will be a new studio but they didnt metion it would be from Brum, still Central news is due a revamp it looks soo tacky their current set up.
Strange you'd think they'd move on Mondfay to present the news and just do a feed from Brum fot the weekend to give them that little bit more to practice
