It doesn't matter how many presenters it has. All the presenters at the BBC have a contract for a certain number of episodes /shifts per year. If you want them for anymore it has to be paid out of your show budget. This is why Huw Edwards went missing for most of the Summer so he could be around for more shifts at Brexit time.
Kirsty has previously said in interviews she does 50 a year, I assume Emma does the same. If Emily does 100. Then there will be 50 for subs
When Emma joined it was said she was contracted for 20 and that both Kirsty and Emily had increased their number of programmes so the 50 for Kirsty may well now be a higher figure, and there are also episodes that are duel presented from the studio and on location which will count towards two peoples contracted days.
That doesn't make sense to me. You have three presenters but they aren't contracted to present the number of shows that are broadcast, so they have to bring other presenters in.
Just like British Airways knows their flying schedule, maintenance schedule and also make an allowance for delays and disruptions of all sorts. Yet, despite all this, they still don’t have enough aircraft to cater to their business. So they lease-in as and when necessary to fulfill the entire schedule. (Albeit a small fraction of the entire fleet is accounted for by leased in aircraft). But it gives them the flexibility of reduced fixed costs and depreciable overheads by always having a variable element to the operation.
Newsnight’s roster is the same thing on a smaller scale. Commercial reasons are behind every such decision. Mark Urban is the leased aircraft for a few flights per month. It saves Newsnight from having to buy a 777 that will only be partially used and sit in the hangar for most of the month.
